“The orca is obviously in huge distress and rams its head forcefully against the metal gate in what seems to be an attempt to escape,” Helene Hesselager O’Barry.

The video was provided to The Dolphin Project by an anonymous activist, who shot the heartbreaking scene between orca shows. The small pool where the orca is being held is an enclosure used for medical examinations, according to The Dolphin Project.

The orca behind the gate was confirmed to be Morgan. The orca on the other side is Tekoa.

“This is not an isolated incident,” O’Barry told The Dodo. “Abuse like this is routine. The only hope is that people will stop buying tickets to dolphin and orca shows.”
