Tilikum is and orca [killer whale] who was apart of a documentary called "Blackfish" And how captivity can do more damage then good [entertainment]. Tilikum resides in Sea World Orland, FL. He was result in the Dawn Blancheau incident.
Killer whales DO NOT have their teeth removed in captivity. Unless they are being kept by kidnappers and people who wish to do wrong things and don't properly care. Killer whales are SAFE and HAPPY in their homes.
When Tilikum did not perform a trick correctly, food was withheld from both him and his tankmates, which caused a great deal of tension, and as a result, Haida and Nootka would bite Tilikum and rake the entire length of his body with their teeth.
