Give us back our big baby: Marine park in bizarre tug-of-love case over 17-foot killer whale

    1 Comment

    From the UK Daily Mail:

    Two theme parks are waging an international custody dispute in court – over a 17-foot killer whale.

    SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida, is demanding the return of Ikaika, a two-tonne, captive-born orca that it sent to Marineland in Niagara Falls, Canada, in 2006.

    But Marineland has defied the call – and a judge’s order – and insisted that Ikaika stays, dismissing SeaWorld’s claim that the mammal was only a temporary loan and branding the dispute ‘unfortunate’.

    This is actually one of the longer articles I’ve seen about this. There are also a few nice pictures included with the article.
