In sad news, Tilikum, the orca made famous by the “Blackfish” documentary, has died. Seaworld made the announcement overnight saying that he had been suffering from some serious health issues without giving an official cause of death.
Tilikum led a life shrouded in controversy after he was involved in the deaths of up to 3 people. The emotional impact of captivity and the trauma of being removed from his family as a calf in the waters off Iceland have been suggested as a cause of his behaviour.
He was 36 years old. Let’s hope he can now finally rest in peace and be free.

Levi will make a wonderful addition to our family and, as my son said, he finally gets a brother! He also has a nice cutback! 🏄🏻

In 2017, we’ll see the drawing of the curtains on Holden.
The Aussie icon was formed by James Alexander Holden when he started as a saddlery business in Adelaide, South Australia. Throughout the 1920s Holden also supplied tramcars for Melbourne. In 1931, the two companies merged to become General Motors-Holden's Limited
