Hello world, my name is Sarah :) :P My best friends are@Tears_of_13 and@HollyIero. You gotta problem with them, you go through me first ;) My little sister killjoylove is my life, I love her to bits. I have been a whaling activist since the age of 5. Can tell you anything/ everything about Orca whales. I lived in Florida, USA for 5 months of the year from the age of 2-8. I grew up on the water with sea turtles, dolphins and sharks. I've been to Discovery Cove, SeaWorld and Marineland and NONE of them are by any means good enough to accomidated these animals. Ask me anything about Keiko OR Tilikum Keiko was captured at a young age, taken from his family and kept in a tank in Norway untill Marineland bought him. He lived in an extremely small tank. He was sold to Mexico City for $350,000 and was air lifted there in the early '90s. When Warner Brothers came to Mexico City in 1992 Keiko was discovered and used in Free Willy 1-3. After all of that in the late ninties he started getting skin leisons all over his body. Warner Brothers made a "bay pen" for him to live in for 6 months to prepare him to be released. It was a HUGE netted off area in the water that was 20 timems bigger than his tank. He built up his fitness level and was cured of the leisons and was released in the early 2000's. Only he didn't like living in the wild. He was under constant survailance in the wild untill he died in 2003 in Norway. Keiko was the 2 longest living Adult Orca whale in captivity. Tilikum was caught at a young age and within the first month of being in captivity, a trainer slipped into his tank and was killed. 6 months later another was killed. Tili was sold to SeaWorld as an adult Bull but in 2010 killed trainer Dawn durring a live show. He grabbed her by the pony tail and dragged her in. Tilikum is STILL used in shows today. I have seen Tili live, and he never seemed right to me. Justa reminder of the extremes that happen in captivity.
