SeaWorld Trainer Killed by a whale named Tilikum + This isn’t his first time Killing!

dawnbrancheautilikum SeaWorld Trainer Killed by a whale named Tilikum + This isnt his first time Killing!

This isn’t the first time Tilikum has killed someone.

According to an article from the AP, the whale’s name is Tilikum, and he has a “violent history.” In fact, the whale was “typically kept isolated from SeaWorld’s other killer whales.” Additionally, trainers were not permitted to get in the tank with Tilikum.

A blog from KIRO explains that Tilikum has killed before. “In 1991, a trainer at Sealand slipped into a pool with the 5-ton Orca named Tillikum (sic) and two other whales. She was batted around by the whales until she drowned.”

In 1999, Tilikum, the largest Orca in captivity, was involved in another death. A 27-year-old man hid in the SeaWorld park, and, “after it closed, tried to go swimming with the whales.” Clearly an ill-advised move, and one that cost the man his life.

And the trainer:

Dawn Brancheau, the late trainer, was a 40-year-old veteran who had worked at SeaWorld for some time. A popular article from Yahoo! explains that working at SeaWorld was her dream job, and one that she had strived for since she was a little girl.

The details of the accident are both scant and disturbing. Apparently the whale grabbed Ms. Brancheau by her ponytail and dragged her into the tank. By the time help arrived, the trainer had drowned.

Celebrity zookeeper and animal lover Jack Hanna knew Ms. Brancheau personally. Hanna believes that the late Brancheau wouldn’t want anything to happen to the whale.

Does this KILLER whale deserve to live after killing numerous people?

These animals are in captivity in a big ass fucking swimming pool that WE put them in. This animal was being what the hell it was meant to be a fuckin KILLER WHALE. Stop locking these animals up for human entertainment and they won’t kill your asses. DUH!!! They aren’t made for this shit…This is one cause I can get with PETA on. Actually its the only one.

SMH@ignorant niggas…There are BLACK marine biologists ya know…Niggas just don’t play basketball and football anymore. We’re actually Scientists and Presidents now…. clown!!

why kill the whale for being a damn whale. We the ones expect these animals to act like humans when they are fucking animals. Just cause you train an animal to do human shit, matters a damn. Sigfried and Roy had to learn the hard way…and so do a lot of other people who use animals as entertainment or keep wild animals as pets. IE the monkey that snapped and tore off that lady’s whole damn face. Stop trying to keep wild animals as entertainment or pets…..less chance of somebody being mauled to death

Umm, this really isnt the killer whale’s fault. The park and trainer should know not to go swimming in a pool with her long hair out like that. This is how people get their hair caught on something (in this event, the whale’s teeth) and drown. Events like this happens in a regular pool on the back yard. How could they have over seen this crap. She should have wore a swimming cap.

Well they CALL Them KILLER Whales For this 1 REASON (ya think)

Tilikum has killed before and he will Kill again and Most likely Get away with it because he’s a whale and He doesn’t know any Better and Killer whales are becoming extinct so they’re Not Gonna SLAUGHTER Him. He’ll just keep getting Kills underneath his belt and the MEDIA is gonna keep GLORIFYING his acheivements over the period of the next 10 to 15 years.

SIDENOTE! I wish there was a way to get these Whales in the HOOD lol they getting away with MURDER and shit, niggas A Get jumped and beat up at 2pm and by 3pm he’ll been done CALLED all his Killer WHALE buddies up, next thing you know they Doing drive buys and killing FOLK at 3: 15 pm in broad day Light. The whales will get away with it because they Know no better, The niGGa on thee other hand will serve LIFE in Jail because he’s not Extinct and theres plenty of Room for his Black ass. (LOL) We put KILLER at the FRONT of our names and stiLL be getting locked up for some PETTY CHRIME type shit “J walking” and “Sagging Pants, and “Indescent Exposure” The whales Got KILLER in front of they name and they actually Killing Folks and i Guess it’s “Just another Day at the OFFICE” (smh)

KILL DAT DAMN WHALE ALREADY!

people must forget that theses animals, wild animals, killer shits shouldnt b locked up 4 anyone entertainment. its nice 2 look at but honestly u think they wont get tired n fed up doin the da same shit everyday aganist their will. thats like bein locked up wen u didnt do anything wrong. so n my opinion if their around theses anomals n get hurt, thats their own fault.
