11-day-old 11-day-old 11-day-old 11-day-old 11-day-old whale dies TORONTO - The newborn killer whale who died over the weekend at Marineland is better off now than if she were to spend the rest of her life in captivity, says an animal rights group. "Probably that orca is one of the lucky ones because it doesn't have to face spending the next 20 years swimming swimming ia circles in a very small tank," said Rob Laidlaw, a director with Zoocheck Canada. The 11-day-old 11-day-old 11-day-old 11-day-old 11-day-old female whale, which was born to Nootka, died Sunday The death of the baby whale comes just days after a hard-hitting hard-hitting hard-hitting report released released by Zoocheck, which said Marineland did not meet the physical and social needs of its animals. The natural mortality rate of newborn newborn whales is high but Laidlaw questioned questioned why Marineland is allowing the whales to breed in the first place. Marineland owner John Holer wasn't wasn't available for comment, but last week he called the report "distorted" and questioned the credentials of the experts experts Zoocheck consulted for its report
