Killer Whale Kills Again

Tilikum, a killer whale at Sea World, dragged a trainer underwater and thrashed her to death. This reportedly is the third person this whale has killed. The park soon announced that Tilikum would continue to perform.

God values life, so when that life is taken, there needs to be action to prevent further harm to others.

In Exodus 21:29 God proclaimed, "If the ox has been accustomed to gore in the past, and its owner has been warned but has not kept it in, and it kills a man or a woman, the ox shall be stoned, and its owner also shall be put to death."

Punishment doesn't need to be death, but in my opinion, Sea World should be more concerned with the lives of their employees and customers than sheltering a killer.
