The American media has reported that the killer whale named ‘Lolita’, who lived in an American aquarium for more than five decades, has died. ‘Lolita’ is a female animal. She has lived in a small tank at the Ocean Aquarium in Miami for the past 50 years. It is said that Lolta’s daily duty was to entertain the audience by joining various shows.
Doctors say that ‘Lolita’ died of kidney failure due to a urinary infection. In the past, many animal rights organizations have made a strong effort to release ‘Lolita’ into the sea, and it also received good responses. The authorities said that for the past few months, the ‘Lolita’ has been given the necessary training to be sent back to sea. Before sending an animal trapped in an aquarium for years to the sea, that animal must be trained.
‘Lolita’ and six other killer whales are said to have been captured in 1970. Since then, ‘Lolita’ has been alone, confined to the small tank in the cabin. Killer whales, also known as orcas, are mammals. (Reuters)
