Such sad news has broken today that Tilikum the killer whale at SeaWorld has passed away after being at the location in Florida for 33 years!
Officials have said that he was suffering with some health problems and was being treated at the time by veterinarians for a persistent and complicated bacterial lung infection.
SeaWorld President and CEO Joel Manby has said:
‘Tilikum had, and will continue to have, a special place in the hearts of the SeaWorld family, as well as the millions of people all over the world that he inspired,’
‘My heart goes out to our team who cared for him like family.’
Such sad news.
You cant even say that he had a nice life now can you?
