This is so infuriating!

An orca (AKA killer whale) at an aquatic attraction in the Canary Islands was captured on video in distress, banging its head against the enclosure as it tried to escape its small confinement.

Ric O'Barry's organization, Dolphin Project, captured the video (above) at Loro Parque, an attraction in the Spanish island territory just off the coast of Africa, and it shows some distressing moments.

The attraction apparently has six orca whales on premises, all of which are owned by SeaWorld. Four were sent there to breed, while one was born at the park, and the sixth was rescued from the wild.

It's that sixth whale — named Morgan — that O'Barry's activists believe is the one banging its head against the enclosure wall in the video.

Activists contend that she is stressed and scared in her enclosure, with one citing a study that observed her having trouble with a larger, more aggressive male orca that is affecting her quality of life:

In March, the Girls star underwent surgery after having an ovarian cyst rupture.

Needless to say, it hasn't been an easy journey — but things are beginning to look up.
