Earlier today, SeaWorld Orlando shared the latest update about Tilikum's health from Director of Animal Training Kelly Flaherty-Clark. In this official statement, she said the following: "As we’ve noted from the onset, Tilikum has some good days and some not so good days. He recently had a few of the not so good days in succession. Over the weekend and today his appetite improved a good deal, and we are encouraged by his increased engagement with trainers."
Kelly Flaherty-Clark also stated that "because he had some rough days over the past week, he is in the medical pool where trainers, care staff, and veterinarians can monitor him around the clock, and offer him the care and attention he deserves. We know that his fans want him to feel better, and are cautiously optimistic that he will maintain this trend so they can see him soon. Thank you all for your thoughts and wishes. It means a lot to the trainers, veterinarians, and staff."
Tilikum will continue to receive the world-class care that SeaWorld is known for. Keep checking back to SeaWorldCares.com and Orlando Theme Park News for the latest updates on Tilikum's health.
