Seaworld, Orlando.

Just heard that Tilly, a male orca at seaworld, killed a trainer today. He was also involved with the deaths of two other people in the past.

Now, while I feel for the trainer and the family, my heart really goes out to Tilly. Whales do not belong in tanks. Period. No orca in the wild has ever harmed a person.

Tilly has does this before, yet they still use him as a sperm bank, among other things. It was bound to happen again.

Quit being so stupid and let him live out the rest of his days in the wild. Whales have no place in amusement parks.

  1. Well...Where as it is true that I believe animals should be free, I don't think it would be wise to put Tilly back into the ocean. The whale has lived in captivity for years and when animals live being fed for so long they forget their natural instincts. Not to mention that whales hunt in Pods. It's like a wolf pack...Once a whale has been removed from it's family, others don't accept them easily, especially males...
