The news was announced Saturday night on the company's website, and cited steadily declining ticket sales to their shows across the country — even after the company stopped using elephants in its tours, at the request of animal rights activists.

SeaWorld Finally Ends Controversial Killer Whale Show — But Is The 'Educational' Replacement 'Orca Encounters' Any Better?

no title

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Two days after the tragic death of SeaWorld's famed whale Tilikum on Friday, the theme park put on its FINAL Shamu show.

As we previously reported, SeaWorld faced immense backlash following the release of animal rights documentary Blackfish, an exposé which revealed the dangers of breeding and keeping whales in captivity. The park has since faced immense public pressure, dropping ticket sales, and a decreased fan base.

Now it looks like the company is trying to make good on their promise to improve the lives of their beloved orcas… or are they?

According to SeaWorld, a replacement program called "Orca Encounters" (set to debut this summer) will be a less flashy and "education-based" experience depicting the "natural behaviors" of killer whales.

The full program description reads:

What a sad day for those who adored Tilikum.

As we previously reported, Tilikum was at the center of the anti-SeaWorld documentary Blackfish, which exposed the cruelties of capturing and raising killer whales in captivity. The unfortunate orca was the perfect subject as he was captured off the coast of Iceland in 1983 and had lived in marine parks ever since.

The moving doc also honed in on the death of Dawn Brancheau, a trainer at the park who died after Tilikum pulled her under the water and fatally drowned her during a live performance. The tragedy spurred SeaWorld to ban trainers from performing with orcas as well as a national conversation on poaching whales from the wild for entertainment purposes.

In the statement announcing Tilikum's death, SeaWorld also mentioned Dawn, writing:

While the controversial star has been open about participating in "Brujería" AKA witchcraft in the past, we've never seen such graphic evidence of her beliefs until now. Apparently Azealia's kill room shows "three years" worth of sacrifices.

As the disturbing vid begins, the rapper tells the camera:

"The amount of crap that's about to come off my floor right now guys. Oh My God. I've got my sandblaster, my goggles…it's about to go down. Real witches do real things."

Animal Serial Killer's Death Toll Rises To 17… And Officials Are Scared Humans Are Next!

no title

This is straight up sociopathic!

17 animals have been found dead by scalpel in Canada over the past year, and authorities are starting to think the serial killer could upgrade to human targets soon.

Throughout 2016, nearly a dozen and half animals — including coyotes, snakes, rabbits, geese, dogs, and cats — have been found mutilated in public places around London, Ontario, with their blood drained and their organs professionally removed.

While the killer was mostly only attacking wild animals at first, a headless dog was found skinned outside a beer store last Friday… which, in addition to a cat carcass located alongside the Thames River recently, means he's officially going after domestic animals as well.

But to make things even worse, Judy Foster, executive director of London Human Society, believes this crime spree could have started TWO years ago when the animal rights organization received a skinned goose at their front door!

Judy spoke with London Free Press about the serial killings on Wednesday, saying:
