SeaWorld's baby orca, last to be born in captivity, dies

SeaWorld's baby orca, last to be born in captivity, dies

Three-month-old Kyara, the last baby killer whale born at the orca-filled panopticon known as SeaWorld, has died from what park officials believe to be pneumonia.

Kyara was being dealt with for a disease, likely pneumonia, that SeaWorld's veterinary and creature mind staff was "forcefully treating", as indicated by the announcement.

Kyara, who was born in April, was separated from her mother, Takara, when she fell ill. "As animal caregivers we dedicate our lives to these animals, and this loss will be felt throughout the entire SeaWorld family".

As SeaWorld was announcing Kyara's death at its Texas park, Oscar-nominated actor James Cromwell was in handcuffs at its San Diego attraction after staging a demonstration over orcas in captivity.

As per the recreation center, the whale's ailment was not caused by being in imprisonment.

Last year, SeaWorld announced that it would put an end to its killer whale show. Kyara and Takara are pictured here. The company still has almost two dozen killer whales between these two parks and its location in Orlando, Fla., a SeaWorld spokesman told NPR's Amy Held earlier this year.

The plan is for their performances to be phased out by 2019, with a program of more "natural orca encounters" for guests, going forward. In January 2017, a 36-year-old whale Tilikum died in captivity at the park.

In 2010 a trainer was killed by a killer whale in front of an audience and a documentary released in 2013 entitled Blackfish left many criticising the park.

"Forty orcas have now died on SeaWorld's watch", wrote Colleen O'Brien, a spokeswoman for the animal rights group.

The next youngest, Amaya, was born in late December 2014.
