Killer Whale attacking Trainer at Seaworld

Near Death at SeaWorld -Worldwide exclusive video, obtained via FOIA, depicting a serious aggression incident by the killer whale Kasatka against her SeaWorld San Diego trainer Ken Peters in 2006.

In the video, Kasatka grabs her trainer’s foot and will not let go, dunking him under the water for extended periods of time. Peters, who remains eerily calm, finally manages to free himself, only to have Kasatka charge him over the barrier net.

This video was presented at trial in the case of SeaWorld v US Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis. Judge Ken Welsch, who ruled largely against the company, called the video “chilling”.
