SeaWorld's 69 Critiques of Blackfish - Part 35
Reason 64: Jett: “There is no food left . . .she kept asking him to perform more behaviours . . . he was not getting reinforced for the behaviours that he was doing correctly; he probably was frustrated toward the end...Cast members purport to criticize Dawn Brancheau for her handling of Tilikum.
Jett sums up the details of which other former trainers had previously discussed. The detail that it was coming towards the end of session, thus there was less food left, was explained. The reason why Dawn was asking Tilikum for more and more behaviours was explained. And, more importantly, why Tilikum was not getting reinforced (due to his own error) was explained. Jett concludes, he does not criticise.
Reason 65: Jett: “Tilikum at some point grabbed a hold of her left forearm and started to drag her and eventually did a barrel roll and pulled her in.” This is false…
There is no conclusive proof establishing how Dawn Brancheau was pulled into the pool, as the OSHA hearing acknowledged, which makes it a matter of subjective debate. It’s not down to SeaWorld to determine who’s right and who’s wrong.
Reason 66: Berg: “At first Sea World reported that a trainer slipped and fell into the water and was drowned. So, that was the first report.”.. This is false.. it was the Orange County Sheriff, not SeaWorld, that reported this.
The Orange County Sheriff acted as SeaWorld’s mouth piece. SeaWorld representatives were standing with the sheriff’s office spokesman when he stated that the trainer slipped and fell in. The representatives did not do anything to correct or contradict him. He would have only reported this version of events based on what he had been told only moments earlier by those same representatives. SeaWorld reported to the Sheriff the version of events of which he announced. Berg’s statement is not false.
