Killer Whale Kills Sea World Trainer

A killer whale grabbed female trainer Dawn Brancheau before a “Dine With Shamu” performance and thrashed her around in his mouth, killing her immediately. You can watch home video of the moments before the attack (but not the attack itself); warning, it’s kind of freaky. UPDATE: the whale involved is reportedly named Tilly and has a history of acting out (including other deaths). But he apparently won’t be isolated, which: uh. Bad PR, SeaWorld.
