Tilikum, The world's largest Killer Whale in captivity. I feel so bad for him. SeaWorld, you are terrible. It's your fault Dawn Brancheau died. You knew Tilikum had already killed 2 other people, and yet you allowed trainers to interact with him anyway. Shame on you for making this beautiful animal a slave to entertainment.
