There's no polite way to talk about the killer whale trainer killed by a killer whale in Florida this week. The orca pulled the trainer underwater twice and the result was the trainer drowned.
Already, some people are saying that this proves orcas shouldn't be kept in captivity and other such things. It was a tragic accident, with unknown causes, and the not-too-unlikely outcome of doing animal shows featuring people and very, very large and powerful aquatic animals.
Much more fun is the story making the rounds about actress Jennifer Garner and the dolphin that found some pleasure rubbing on her feet. Oh my. Marine mammals in the news.
