The Plight of the Orca Held in Captivity

Hosted by

At SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida yesterday, a killer whale snatched a trainer in its jaws and thrashed her around under water. She was drowned in front of a horrified audience. That's led to new demands to free the orcas. The same creature also killed another trainer, when she fell off a platform in Victoria, British Columbia in 1995. Ralph Munro, former Secretary of State in Washington State, is a long-time opponent of allowing orcas in captivity.
