This sad story showcases the behavior of orcas. They are voracious predators and aren’t meant to be kept as show ponies. AND this illustrates how wacked public perception of certain animals is. Orcas are considered cute and cuddley animals (a la Free Willy) and sharks are considered blood thirsty man eaters (a la Jaws). Both are top predators and wild animals and neither deserve their reputations.
