Jealousy Makes Killer Whales Kill
Which one is the lip-smackin' treat for Tilly?
Friday, March 12, 2010 16:28 GMTSPOKANE, Wash. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Jealousy may be the main reason why killer whales sometimes kill.
Thats the case with Tilly, the killer whale at the Orlando Sea World who killed his longtime trainer last month.
To understand what drove the mammal to murder, animal communicator Karen Anderson channeled Tilly and discovered that the whale snapped in a fit of jealousy.
She explains, He was very upset that his trainer got distracted and stopped paying attention to him for a moment. He felt like the spotlight should stay on him, so he lashed out and grabbed her.
Unlike humans, killer whales dont reason or consider consequences for their actions, but Tilly was fully aware that he was murdering his trainer.
When speaking with the whale whisperer, Tilly never showed remorse for his crime of passion.
However, Anderson says its animal instinct to kill, so Tilly shouldnt be put down or judged too harshly by human beings.
