Seaworld Star Tilikum Dead At 36
Tilikum, the Seaworld killer whale and subject of the documentary “Blackfish”, has died. He was 36.
Tilikum killed his trainer in Seaworld Orlando 7 years ago. He was also involved in two deaths in the ’90s.
“Blackfish” started a backlash against keeping killer whales in captivity and against Seaworld in general for their treatment of these animals. Visits to the theme park have plummeted over the last few years.
Tilikum lived 33 years inside a tank. He spent his last days nearly alone.
