Tilikum, the orca whale that was the crown jewel of SeaWorld’s aquatic attractions and subject of documentary Blackfish, died on Friday morning. He is estimated to have been 36 years old.
SeaWorld described Tilikum as a
“beloved member of the SeaWorld family” who was “surrounded by the
trainers, care staff and veterinarians that provided him
around-the-clock world-class care” when he died.
While the official cause of death has not yet been
determined, the park said that Tilikum had been suffering from “very
serious health issues,” including a bacterial lung infection. Read more

i'm crying because tilikum died as miserable as he lived in this cement tank but i can't tell you because you're a hypocrite and you actually don't care about animal cruelty so you'll probably call me crazy and change the topic to something unimportant
