SeaWorld Doesn't Want Its Killer Whale Trainers Federally Protected From A Gruesome Death!!!

killer whales federal government bars close contact with trainers seaworld objects orcas free wily blackfish death Tilikum

Everyone is entitled to their day in court!!!

Even companies like SeaWorld who oppose current federal regulations that protect trainers from deadly orcas!

Killer whales like Tilikum have been living up to their name for years, but when SeaWorld Orlando trainer Dawn Brancheau was killed on the job in 2010 the government finally decided end the madness.

After an investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration concluded working conditions for whale trainers were simply too unsafe, the government barred close contact with these potentially dangerous creatures without some sort of barrier in between.

While this is good news for the friends, family, and children of current trainers who don't want to see their loved ones maimed or killed, it was apparently bad news for SeaWorld stockholders as it cramped the style of the Shamu-esque whale show so many ticket-goers paid to see.

Near Death At SeaWorld Tape Released To The Public

Filed under: Legal MattersSea CreaturesAttack!ZooWhales

They are called KILLER whales…as in they can KILL you!!!

Trainer Ken Peters is a VERY lucky man.

During a 2006 performance with Kasatka at SeaWorld San Diego, the killer whale nearly drowned Peters.

He was able to escape and only suffered minor injuries.

Due to the Freedom of Information Act, the video of the near death has been released as OSHA presented the tape in defense of SeaWorld.

The video is related to safety violations filed against SeaWorld during the 2010 death of Dawn Brancheau.

Check out the vid (above) to see the harrowing experience all on tape.

SeaWorld is currently weighing the possibility of an appeal to remove restrictions ruled against them in June.

Killer whales belong in the oceans…not in theme parks or zoos.
