SeaWorld Killer Whale Thrashes and Nearly Drowns To Death Trainer. (Vid)

A video that shows a nearly 6,000lb killer whale thrashing his SeaWorld trainer for a heart-stopping 15 minutes has been released.

The 2006 video was released as part of the on-going litigation against the theme park by the US Secretary of Labor, who alleges SeaWorld has endangered scores of its trainers by exposing them to the dangerous whims of the enormous whales.

Kasatka’s (the killer whale) attack on San Diego trainer Ken Peters eerily foreshadowed the death of trainer Dawn Brancheu in Orlando, who was butchered in February 2010 by another killer whale named Tilikum.

The video of the 15-minute ordeal has only now been posted online after it was presented at a Occupational Safety and Health Administration court hearing in September.

At the time, Judge Ken Welsch called the video, which was captured by SeaWorld cameras, ‘chilling.’

In the video, Kasatka grabs her trainer’s foot and will not let go, dunking him under the water for extended periods of time.

‘When he resurfaced, she grabbed him again, this time “rag-dolling” her trainer violently by shaking him back and forth with her powerful neck muscles.’

He describes her actions as the calculated instincts of a killer.

‘Then, slowly and deliberately, as if performing a bizarre underwater pas de deux, the whale began to spiral upward with Peters’ foot in her mouth,’ he said.

‘Finally Peters told his colleagues to abandon the recall effort since it only seemed to make Kasatka bite down harder.’

Mr Kirby notes that Kasatka was careful to keep Mr Peters in the middle of the pool and away from the other trainers trying to rescue him from the edges.

At the time, SeaWorld tried to downplay the incident.

‘There are times like this. They are killer whales. She did choose to demonstrate her feelings in a way that was unfortunate,’ Mike Scarpuzzi, head trainer at SeaWorld, said at the time.

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I'm an older student of the bible. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is being gradually established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction". There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Let's hope they are wrong.
