Written by Domenik Jost
SeaWorld just announced that it will soon allow whale trainers back in the water, for the first time since the death of trainer Dawn Brancheau last year. According to Orlando television station WESH, trainers will begin slowly interacting with orcas in medical pools equipped with movable bottoms that can be lifted out of the water.Tweet
SeaWorld also reportedly plans on spending millions of dollars on safety upgrades for the facilities at its three locations.
