SeaWorld Orlando has moved Tilikum the whale to a medical pool this week, after the animal became ill. Tilikum is most widely known for being the whale who killed SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau after a show in February 2010. Tilikum was moved to the medical pool after changes in his behavior was observed by trainers. Veterinary staff monitor the pool and continue to watch for improvements in the whale. He is currently still interacting with the staff and is continuing to improve every day.
