I understand why some "THEME PARK" fans are glad Tilikum is back. Myself Tilikum, or no Tilikum, I would still go to Seaworld. I think the argument about a better show though is kind of short sided. I just feel like there's something wrong about this and a better show shouldn't be the ultimate judgment decider. Seaworld is just protecting his business here and (and this is just my personal opinion) I don't think is all about the Show but keeping their calve machine going strong too. Half a dozen calves must be pretty lucrative... I just think 3 dead's are p-l-e-n-t-y!
Like I said I would still go, since I don't really go to see Tilikum. And about nothing happening let's not forget Brancheau wasn't really (sort of, kind of) in the water and was rather pulled in. But hey don't need to be sad "The Show" will go on...
If I lived near Orlando, I'd still visit Sea World regardless if Tilikum was or wasn't there.
I dont think he should be banned from ever performing again, but I don't think he should be in the water with them. I do beg to ask though, if they did ever ban him completely from show biz what could they do with him? Put him in a viewing tank for the rest of his life? That seems like it would hurt his state of mind even more.
