Overview

Killer in the Pool by Tim Zimmermann

On February 24, 2010, Tilikum, the largest killer whale at SeaWorld, suddenly dragged Dawn Brancheau, his trainer, into the pool and killed her. Journalist Tim Zimmermann set out to find out why. His riveting account of Tilikum's life and the history of killer whale entertainment at marine parks dives into the world of the ocean's top predator. It chronicles Tilikum's capture and separation from his family and the physical and psychological stress he experienced in marine park pools over some thirty years. It explores Tilikum's involvement in two previous deaths. And it details the inherent risks of using captive killer whales for human entertainment. Ultimately, Zimmermann explains how the life of Tilikum came to mean the death of Dawn Brancheau.

Reminder of a very sad situation. Animals were not made for us to take them from their homes so we could stare at them through a glass box.

Seriously? If you guys want to rp so badly, just go to the warriors website! There are millions of "clans" there where you can rp without getting in the way of people who want to read good and honest reviews about books they want to read! Reporting all of you.
