VIDEO: Trainer becomes Killer Whale Toy at Seaworld

A trending video on YouTube is showing what appears to be an exclusive video of a killer whale, apparently named Kasatka, showing aggression toward her SeaWorld San Diego trainer Ken Peters in 2006.

The YouTube description notes:

In the video, Kasatka grabs her trainer’s foot and will not let go, dunking him under the water for extended periods of time. Peters, who remains eerily calm, finally manages to free himself, only to have Kasatka charge him over the barrier net.

This video was presented at trial in the case of SeaWorld v US Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis. Judge Ken Welsch, who ruled largely against the company, called the video “chilling” – More details are provided in DEATH AT SEAWORLD (St Martin’s Press, July 17, 2012)

  1. This guy can hold his breath. Gives navy SEALs a run for their money.

  2. This is terrible. Someday they will learn to stop playing with these animals and let them go. They don’t belong in captivity and these “trainers” are getting what they deserve imprisoning these helpless animals.
