Newly published photographs taken by Ontario Captive Animal Watch (OCAW), appear to show that Marineland’s solitary killer whale ‘Kiska’, is in bad shape.
"Kiska is terribly sick and lonely. Her spirit is certainly broken (has been since Athena died), and her physical health continues to decline. For as long as I can remember, Kiska has been on a wide array of medication, including antifungals, antibitotics and valium. We’ve witnessed all kinds of new cuts and abrasions surface on Kiska’s body — no doubt from bumping and rubbing against the pool’s sharp circumference.”
This is one of the worst cases of orca captivity I’ve seen, her fin is literally disintegrating away, and her teeth are ground down to the jawbone. This breaks my heart theres nothing humane or natural or educational about this people are paying to see a whale who is merely just existing in a concrete prison that will die alone without even getting a chance to experience half the life she would have in the ocean with her family. ugh
