ORLANDO, Fla. – SeaWorld tweeted Monday it's encouraged by the increased engagement that Tilikum, one of the orcas at the company's marine theme park in Orlando, has had with trainers.
Tilikum has reportedly had some good days and not so good days, but he had recently had several not so good days in a row.
The director of animal training, Kelly Flaherty-Clark, said Tilikum is in the medical pool, where trainers, care staff and veterinarians can monitor him around the clock and offer him the care and attention he deserves.
"We know that his fans want him to feel better, and are cautiously optimistic that he will maintain this trend so they can see him soon," Flaherty-Clark said. "Thank you all for your thoughts and wishes. It means a lot to the trainers, veterinarians and staff.”
