Seaworld Parks And Entertainment Inc.: A Case Study

1020 Words 4 Pages
There was an accident that a killer whale (Tilikum) drew and killed a veteran trainer (Dawn Brancheau) in 2006 at Sea World during a show. Other workers used nets as an alarm sounded, booted the audience out of the stadium at that time. However, it was too late. She was killed by Tilkum, and people witnessed the accident. An audience (Eldon Skaggs) said that he heard the whale was not responding to directions during an earlier show. Besides, this was not first time to kill people for Tilikum, it was third time. A head of animal training at all Sea World parks (Chuck Tompkins) said “there wasn’t anything to indicate that there was a problem.” He also mentioned that Tilikum had performed well in the show. Strange to say, as he was big and previous deaths, trainers were not supposed to swim with him, and only some trainers worked with him. In these trainers, Brancheau was one of the most experienced trainers.
