The Shamu Show Will Resume on Saturday

In a press conference held today at SeaWorld, it was announced that just days after trainer Dawn Brancheau was killed while working with one of the orca whales, the Shamu show would begin again. Plus, Brancheau's family is speaking out about their loss.

“We will resume our performances on Saturday but our trainers will not enter the water,” SeaWorld president and CEO Jim Atchison said, adding, “It’s indefinite how long it will be before people get back into water. It’s a judgment call.”

Atchison said changes will be made to the show, but he’s uncertain what they will be yet. He also said that Tilikum, the whale involved in the fatal incident, will remain a part of the show.
