    I feel for the parents of children watching the show. It will be very difficult to explain the tragedy to them.

    Dawn's sister appeared on MSNBC , she said Dawn would not want anything done to Tilly . IMHO, they knew he was dangerous from previous incidents . I have to feel for the whale . SW is stating it would not survive on its own . Could they not try with modification ? This poor mammal was speaking out the only way he knew how too .
    SW has announced all Shamu shows are canceled indefinitely . San Diego included .
    We were planning on going to SW in a few weeks, but not now . Jim & I are so devastated that this senseless incident happened, that we can't bring ourselves to go .

    I have seaworld on my facebook, world of discovery have said that they are still going to work with the orca but that their procedures are going to be looked at.

    I understand how we feel (the posters here on this thread) and passions run high all around.

    It is very hard to separate the tragedy of the loss of a talented, intelligent woman, and what some of us feel is a tragedy of the captive animal.

    Thank you all for being considerate of the complexities and the high emotion surrounding this complex issue.

    Me too ;( but she died doing EXACTLY what she always wanted to do and how many of us can say the things we dreamed about at 9 were what we ended up doing day to day?

    I know she wouldn't have wanted it to put people off going to Seaworld and I'll be going back during our next trip for sure.

    I can't bring myself to do it , not because of the mammal activists . That it is So Sad that there will be no more Shamu shows . I leave in 24 days, I'm not saying I'll never go back, but not right now .
