Beluga Whale Dies at SeaWorld San Antonio

Another beautiful sea creature has died in captivity at a SeaWorld park.

Bella, a four-year-old beluga whale, died this past Sunday at SeaWorld San Antonio. Bella was born at SeaWorld and lived her entire life in captivity. Park officials aren’t saying a whole lot about the whale’s death, though they have stated that Bella died after a “brief illness,” and a necropsy will be performed, though the results will take “several weeks.” The illness, time of death, or any other details are still unknown at this point.

Beluga whales are known for being gentle and friendly, including around humans. SeaWorld San Antonio has a “Beluga Interaction Program,” where people as young as seven can get into the pool with the belugas. Could the program have contributed to Bella’s illness and death? It certainly doesn’t seem like a safe and sanitary arrangement, but neither does living in a bathtub for your entire life.
