SeaWorld: Trainers to go back in the water with Killer Whales

27 Feb

Good news guys…SeaWorld is preparing to put trainers back in the water with the killer whales for the first time since a trainer was drowned by a whale one year ago.

SeaWorld announced last week that trainers will begin limited ‘water work’ with killer whales within the next few months, with the interactions initially restriced to small medical pools specially equiped with false-bottom floors which can be lifted out of the water.

They have also announced that they will spends millions of dollars in the next coming months on safety upgrades – from custom designed pool floors which are fast-rising, to underwater vehicles fitted with pulsing lights and whale vocalizations which will be used to distract killer whales if necessary.

So watch this space…
