In 2010, Tilly attacked and killed his trainer. Animal Defenders International (ADI) claims that the tragic attack is an indication of the killer whale’s frustration in a severely deprived environment. ADI states that the use of wild animals in captivity causes psychological suffering and extreme physical and mental effects.
ADI needs your help to ensure that Tilly gets rehabilitation so he might be able to go free. They are urging people to express their disapproval for the use of killer whales as entertainment in theme parks by signing this pledge.
