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.
