Ike begins journey from Marineland to SeaWorld Orlando

Posted Monday, November 14, 2011 12:05 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Ikaika the killer whale was escorted out of the country in a procession worthy of a head of state. A witness said he counted at least 14 Niagara Regional Police cruisers, with lights flashing, two transport trucks and a crane slowly escorting the 9-year-old male orca from Marineland toward Hamilton airport on the QEW on Saturday evening. He's being moved to SeaWorld Orlando.

That's a long drive for a whale. I hope they don't run into any complications.

Maybe they're afraid PETA is going to invoke the Fugitive Slave Act.

(sorry, had to do it)

The whale is flying. He's not taking a road trip.

Ike's moving, but without Tina? What about the Ikettes? ;)

Ike is dead - and Tina kicked the crap out of him in that Limo anyway. Never ever mess with a woman who wears spike heels.

If Six Flags Discovery Kingdom can survive with one Orca, so can Marineland.

I for one would love to see how exactly an orca whale is secured inside a plane. That's one set of animals that are truly not meant to fly.

I imagine they'd have to start with several sheets of transparent aluminum...

Maybe they're using a Klingon ship.

If you can travel through time with whales, flying them from Toronto to Orlando shouldn't be that big of a deal.

Not really, I just think the dialog in that movie is hilarious.

They like you very much, but they are not the hell "your" whales.

I think they settled on 6" thick Plexiglas.
