SeaWorld 'Aids and Abets' Serial-Killer Whale Print E-mail

Animal Tilikum.jpgAn All-Points-Bulletin (APB) has been placed on Tilikum, the serial-killer whale, a 'fugitive of justice' for the alleged homicides of three human beings occuring at SeaWorld aquariums all across the country.

Police have been told to be on the look-out for an orca that has a propensity for killing trainers, who attempt to pet it in a friendly manner. The perpetrator is armed with a large mouth and very dangerous. Cops are being urged to proceed with caution and with their guns at the ready when coming into contact with Tilikum. Of course, I say this in jest, but shockingly, SeaWorld has no intention of punishing the serial-killer whale.

According to Fox News, "SeaWorld stands by killer whale. Two days after a killer whale grabbed the ponytail of his trainer and dragged her into the tank, causing her to drown, SeaWorld officials affirmed the giant orca would not be punished (and get sent into an isolation tank), but that all trainers would be kept out of the tanks until a review can be completed."

The serial-killer whale, which drowned a veteran trainer, was merely curious about her ponytail and dragged her into the water to play with a new so-called toy, announced the former head of animal training at Sea World on Friday.

As reported by Fox, "Thad Lacinak, who helped train Dawn Brancheau, said she was very good but made a mistake by lying down on a watery shelf next to the 12,000-pound animal and letting her long hair get in front of the 22-foot orca named Tilikum - the largest killer whale in captivity.

Lacinak, who left SeaWorld in 2008 after a long career to start a consultancy, told the AP that, "she was an excellent. One of the best I've ever seen in my life ... But allowing her ponytail to drift into the water in front of the anumal turned out to be a fatal mistake."

I bet U.S Attorney, Patrick Fitzgerald, could get Homeland Security's ICE to get an investigation started against the whale to see that justice is served. What do you think?

"Killer" Whale.

This animal has killed more people than waterboarding.

While in India on assignment from the military, I happened upon a street show where some old man would "hypnotize" a King Cobra and then kiss it on the head.

On a return trip, two years later, I asked about the man who kissed the Cobra. The response was, "The Cobra kissed him!".

If you play games with animals that kill for a living, you will probably not live to tell about your career.
