Orca's future uncertain after trainer death

SeaWorld has not decided whether an orca that killed its trainer by dragging her into the water will keep performing, an official said yesterday.

In the days after Dawn Brancheau died, the park's top official pledged that the killer whale, named Tilikum, would return to the Florida park's shows. But a spokesman said yesterday that nothing would be decided until after a review.

Ms Brancheau (40) died almost two weeks ago after being thrashed underwater by the killer whale after a performance.
