Dog Bites Man

A killer whale killed a trainer Wednesday afternoon at SeaWorld’s Shamu Stadium in Orlando, Florida, a public information officer for the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said.

Well, duh.  They are called killer whales.  They aren’t called cuddly whales.  I bet if you went to a “Killer Mexicans” show, you wouldn’t be surprised if someone there didn’t make it.

    This reminds me of the story about those two nature lovers (I think they were boyfriend and girlfriend) in Alaska who said you could pet bears and that they were very docile. They used to take pictures of themselves petting bears, then one day they weren’t heard from and eventually they found a shoe with a foot in it which was all that was left of them unless you count the human remains in the bear excrement. Seriously that day the bear must have felt exactly how Sally Struthers would feel if a Twinky were to approach and try to pet her.

  2. And the multiple tiger trainer gets mauled/eaten/dead by tiger stories. Apex predators aren’t fun, cuddly performers.
