Killer Whales

SeaWorld to Resume Orca Shows

The show must go on: SeaWorld will resume killer whale shows on Saturday despite Wednesday’s deadly attack by an orca on his trainer. However, trainers will stay out of the water until the investigation into trainer Dawn Brancheau’s death is completed. The offending whale, Tilikum, will not be punished or isolated. "He will remain an active and contributing member of the team, despite what happened," said SeaWorld President Jim Atchinson.
