Today it is 30 years since Tilikum was kidnapped from the wild.
30 years since he last saw and felt the ocean.
30 years since he last saw his mother.
30 years of having to perform circus tricks to get food.
30 years of being the sperm bank of the captive orca breeding program.
30 years of being raked and attacked by other orcas.
30 years of being isolated in small tanks.
30 years of stress, loneliness and frustration.
On behalf of all mankind: I’m so sorry, Tilikum.
