A notorious killer whale named Tilikum has killed a 40-year-old female trainer at the SeaWorld marine park in Orlando, Florida. Officials are calling the incident an accident, saying the woman fell in the water, but witnesses have said that the 12,300-pound orca jumped up from the water and grabbed her by the waist. But this is just one in a string of fatalities involving experienced animal trainers and wildlife experts in recent years, reports the Telegraph.
