Seaworld quits Orca shows

SeaWorld has recently announced to end Orca shows. However, the 29 Orcas at SeaWorld won´t be released, but have to remain until the end of their life in SeaWorld. Tilikum, a whale captured at the age of 2 and separated from his family, suffers from a bacterial lung infection, due to a vet working at SeaWorld. They haven´t found a cure for his health concern and this might cause his death. Over the past weeks his condition worsened a lot, but he still receives treatment from the SeaWorld team. The movie “Blackfish” published in 2013 is about the famous killerwhale Tilikum, his captivity and the 3 relating deaths.
