Tilikum, the Sea World orca featured in ‘Blackfish’, has died

RIP, Tilikum.

The Orca that was profiled in the documentary Blackfish died on Friday.

During his time at Sea World Orlando, Tilikum sired 14 calves.

He was also involved in the deaths of three people including trainer Dawn Brancheau, who he pulled into the pool in 2010.

Tilikum was captured near Iceland in 1983, when he was 2 years old, and brought to the Sealand of the Pacific park, which has since shuttered.

He arrived at SeaWorld in 1992.
