SeaWorld Trainer Killed by Killer Whale Tillikum

Sadly, forty year old SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau, was attacked and killed by SeaWorlds killer whale Tillikum. It's reported that Tillikum pulled her into the tank by her ponytail. Due to the whales aggressiveness they were unable to rescue Dawn, and her death resulted from injuries and drowning. Prior to this incident, the killer whale Tillikum had taken the lives of two other people, which also brings the question of whale captivity to mind once again.
