I love killer whales and I like to see them at Sea World. Well yesterday a killer whale lived up to his name. I don’t know what the trainer said about Tilikum, but he showed her who was really in charge. Witnesses report that Tilikum “swam around the tank, leapt out and grabbed the woman by the waist with his jaws and then thrashed her about until her shoes came off.” The 40-year old trainer, who was one of the most skilled at Sea World, died.
Their was an announcement made at the beginning of the show that the whales weren’t cooperating and just wanted to splash around. That to me means that they should have canceled the show and let the whales just chill and eat fish. I mean think about it. When the whales are in the ocean they just swim around and eat all the fish they want. Now you have them in a tank, which is like a bathtub compared to the ocean, and they have to jump and do tricks to get fish. WTF.
Maybe it’s time to let Tilikum go. He’s the largest to be in captivity and whales are “intelligent creatures with emotions and feelings.” It’s like Tilikum has been listening to Lil Wayne and is telling Sea World, “Ok you’re a goon, but what ‘s a goon to a goblin.”by Latrice
