Four more orcas taken from the wild for display in amusement parks
Four more orcas, or killer whales, have now been confirmed to have been captured in Far East Russian waters for use in amusement parks.
This brings the total to seven orcas taken in recent months from the Sea of Okhotsk—the massive far eastern inland sea of Russia, lying due north of Japan. All seven were taken by the same Russian catching team that caught a female orca in the same area last year. All are believed to be being held in Nakhodka, near the eastern port city of Vladivostok.
