Family of Dawn Brancheau releases official statement in regards to Blackfish

SeaWorld posts a direct response to 'Blackfish' film backlash


The family of Dawn Brancheau, the woman who died at SeaWorld working with Tilikum the orca, has released an official statement regarding their daughter and the film Blackfish.  The family mentions that the film is “not Dawn’s story.” And also goes on to mention that they feel the attention to the whales has far out shadowed the death of their daughter.

To read the complete statement, head on over to the official Dawn Brancheau Foundation page here.  You can also donate to the foundation on that page as well.
