    A third whale dies at Sea World within six months


    • Unna, 18, died at park in Texas after battle with fungal infection Candida
    • Traditional treatment was not working on the captive-born whale, and a new method was thought to be promising before the orca's death Monday
    • A premature baby beluga died at San Antonio SeaWorld in July, and a two-year-old beluga died of gastrointestinal problems in November
    • Some claim that keeping orcas in captivity cuts short their lives, though the park says that activists are using statistics to their own benefit
    Unna, an 18-year-old orca at SeaWorld San Antonio, has died after a months-long battle with an infection.

    SeaWorld said that the female whale had been undergoing medical treatment after it was discovered that she had contracted a fungal infection in September.

    'We are saddened to share the passing of Unna today,' the park's website posted on Monday, adding that it is a 'difficult time for the SeaWorld team and all of Unna’s many fans'.

    I always assume by the time i'm an old man we'll look back on the practice of keeping these beasts in small pools to entertain us with absolute horror

    I live 45 minutes away from that sea world and can proudly say that I've never been there once. Too many Mexicans.

    I've read several books about the whale tilikum, who has killed three people and I've watched blackfish. I'm sorry I did cause now I'm haunted by their abuse. I've gone whale watching in the san juan islands and it was thrilling to see them in their natural habitat. Animals have no rights and we treat them horribly.

    Fuck whales. They're stupid animals.

    That being said, I'm sure you're right. However, that's not because people in the future will be right, it's because the world is going to absolute shit. Insane, reality-hating pussies are taking over :grad:

    not me. At zoos and similar, we treat the animals very well. It's no picnic out in the real world.

    Killer whales are apex predators they have no natural predators
    Cats on the other hand can be owned by a body of water

    I'm usually with you, but you couldn't be more wrong here.

    Whales are highly intelligent and capable of communicating with humans.

    They also remain in their familial units for life.

    Sea World is an abomination.
