Oh, c'mon you sissy...

...what could possibly go wrong?
...oh yeah... that.

It marked the third time the 12,000-pound animal had been involved in a human death.

Steve Huxter, who was head of Sealand's animal care and training department then, said Wednesday he's surprised it happened again.
Live and don't learn.

Yeah, Dawn Brancheau is dead... and that's pretty funny.

Have yourself a good laugh.

sorry, brian... i'm tired of this nonsense... and i'm just shaking my head at the uselessness of it all.

you climb into a tank with a, what do they call that thing... oh, yeah... a killer whale... and something bad happens.

and why is she doing this thing? not to save lives, not to advance the cause of medicine or science... but to provide disney-style entertainment.

it's simply another sigfried & roy moment... except that, apparently... the whale already had a couple of notches on his gun.

again... it's a shame when anyone dies before their time, but geez... what a stupid waste of a life.

How could this post be misconstrued as "funny".

It would appear that some people think no one should have a realistic or negative thought on how the unfortunate woman met her demise.

It's those sensitive feeling again!

apparently seaworld is now blaming this on a fashion/wardrobe malfunction...

Chuck Tompkins, head of animal training at all SeaWorld parks, said: "Dawn had just finished up a very good session with this animal. She was interacting with him, petting him on the nose.

"Dawn had very long hair in a ponytail. That ponytail had swung in front of him. He grabbed her by the hair and pulled her underwater and held her underwater."

Witnesses at an earlier show said that the whale had been behaving like an unruly child but Mr Tompkins dismissed the reports and said he was a "good animal".

of course, in actual fact... this has squat to do with good or bad... this is a wild creature for gawd's sake.

in his/her/it's world... this thing is top carnivore... they're just fortunate it didn't decide to have a little snack right in front of hundreds of smiling kids in the bleachers.
