That’s Why They’re Called Killer Whales

A killer whale at Orlando’s Sea World has just killed a female trainer during a show. It sounds like a horrifying incident, and, while the article doesn’t mention this, I’m sure the killing was witnessed by numerous small children.

The whale had previously drowned another trainer almost twenty years ago, and also apparently killed some other idiot who sneaked into the park after hours for a visit to the killer whale tank.

Let’s hope today’s incident hastens a ban on confining killer whales for public performances. (Thanks, Rachel and Matt.) Link.
