SeaWorld Orca Purposely Beaches Herself After Park Show! Watch The Horrifying Footage!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad SadWhalesViral: Animals

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.

Though a few wild orca breeds are known to temporarily beach themselves while hunting, the animals remain in constant motion otherwise — even swimming while they sleep.

Richard O'Barry, founder of Dolphin Project, explained that Morgan's "bizarre behavior" would never be witnessed in the wild, noting:

AWFUL! Footage Shows Stressed SeaWorld Orca Banging Head Over And Over Against Enclosure!

no title

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:

SeaWorld Loses Appeal In Court! Turns Out It's Dangerous To Work With Deadly Killer Whales!

SeaWorld lost an appeal case, basically meaning that they are in fact at fault for a killer whale killing a trainer!

SeaWorld hasn't been shown in the best light these days…

Maybe it's because of the horrible way they keep majestic sea creatures trapped.

Thankfully, a proposed bill in California might make it illegal for SeaWorld to have orcas!

Even a former SeaWorld trainer said they barely care about

dolphin biting girl at seaworld

Looks like this Flipper flipped out!

While visiting San Antonio's SeaWorld, a 9-year old girl was reportedly petting a dolphin at their Dolphin Cove where petting is allowed, when the dolphin allegedly bit her hand so tightly, that her mother was unable to free her from its clutches.

In fact, it took a SeaWorld employee to extricate her from the mouth of the beast. Okay, dolphins aren't beasts, but still…scary stuff! We knew dolphins had sex for fun, but gnawing on little girls? Keep it classy, guys!

Now, PETA is asking
