Kat this photoset goes out to you
For some reason every time I try to reblog it's deleting the text above mine? That's really interesting to learn though. It made sense to not take an animal with a virus at that time, but I can't imagine the headache and heartache it would've saved in the long run (with Tilikum being at SeaWorld, not Keiko's release). I don't usually like "eyewitness account" type novels so I haven't read Death at SeaWorld (or Killing Keiko) yet, so I totally missed that annotation, thank you!
