This is just horrendous!

Last month Morgan, a SeaWorld-owned orca whale at an aquatic attraction in the Canary Islands, was recorded repetitively banging its head against her enclosure, desperately trying to escape its tiny confinement.

Now, new footage shows Morgan deliberately beaching herself after a show at Loro Parque back in May.

After performing for tourists, the killer whale launched herself onto a concrete slab, where she laid motionless for over 10 minutes — as tourists took selfies with the animal in the background.

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:
