24 02 2010

Now this doesn’t make sense at all…..a ‘Killer Whale’ killing something? My mind can barely grasp on to that concept.

From CNN:

A killer whale killed a trainer Wednesday afternoon at SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida, a spokesman for the Orange County Fire Department said.

The spokesman, John Mulhall, said the trainer was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident did not occur during a performance, said a spokeswoman for SeaWorld, who added that more information was to be released soon.

Next time you wanna take a beast that is so good at killing shit that they fucking name it after its favorite pasttime, put it in a tank, and make it do tricks for fish….just expect something to go wrong at some point.
