Tilikum, The world's largest Killer Whale in captivity. I feel so bad for him. SeaWorld, you are terrible. It's your fault Dawn Brancheau died. You knew Tilikum had already killed 2 other people, and yet you allowed trainers to interact with him anyway. Shame on you for making this beautiful animal a slave to entertainment.

Captive Orca Freya Has Died At Marineland Antibes, France. Stolen from her family at 1 yr old in 1982, she lived 32 years as a captive slave for human entertainment. She suffered 4 stillbirths because the jacka**es in France couldn't get the message that her calves kept dying. Had she been left alone in the wild, she most likely could have lived to be 80. Sickening that this is what some people find "entertaining".
