Family of Dawn Brancheau releases statement critical of Blackfish

Posted Tuesday, January 21, 2014 6:46 PM | Contributed by Jeff

The family of the trainer who died working with SeaWorld orca Tilikum says the film is "not Dawn's story." They also said, "Since Dawn’s death nearly four years ago, the media has focused mainly on the whales. A human life was lost that day and it feels as though some believe her death was just a footnote."

Read the entire statement from The Dawn Brancheau Foundation. You can also donate to the foundation at that link.

They handled that statement really well. I hope that people honor their request for privacy.
