How is Tilikum doing? Anyone know?

I was just wondering if anyone knows or read how Tili is doing. Is he still secluded from the other orcas?


From Tili's side, I know he must be stressed out, as animals are very smart and they "know" when something isnt right. And he must know one of his trainers is gone. May she rest in peace.

I was kind of wondering that myself. Animals have feelings too. I just watched the first show after video and found myself thinking the whales must be wondering why the trainers are standing so far away and why aren't they interacting the way they usually do. I felt bad for the whales, well and all the sad, tearful people watching too. It was touching to see the first show, even if from my monitor.

I always wanted to be a dolphin trainer at Sea World myself, but it just didn't happen for this Indiana girl.

I too agree Dawn definitely went out doing what she loved...

i hope he isnt stressed out and is swimming with the other orcas. I think about him and the other orcas alot. He was the one who did all the BIG SPLASHES at the end of the shows....(if I heard correctly) and I know they arent going to bring him to do those things from what I have read. But surely the trainers are still interacting with Tili right? I just cant help but to worry about the big guy. Maybe we will get an update soon!
