That's Why They're Not Called Happy Fuzzy Bunny Whales

This was to be a passing reference to current events, but it looks like things are about to get interesting (emphasis mine):

Did trainer slip into killer whale tank or was she pulled in?

A witness told CNN affiliate WKMG-TV that the whale approached the glass side of the 35-foot-deep tank at Shamu Stadium, jumped up and grabbed the trainer by the waist, shaking her so violently that her shoe came off. A SeaWorld employee, who asked not to be identified, also described the incident the same way.

But Orange County Sheriff's Office spokesman said Brancheau slipped into the tank.

"This appears to be an accident," said Jim Solomons.
Reminds me of Bob Uecker in Major League - "Just a bit outside."

I hope her family doesn't let them get away with this.

I'm thinking this was a terrorist Happy Fuzzy Bunny Whale. Did anyone hear him whistle "Allah Akbar?"
