I ve not heard of such a story since Born Free when Elsa the lioness was returned to the wild after being raised by Joy Adamson. Imagine trying to release a whale back to the ocean what a monumental task! In Killing Keiko you ll learn about the struggle and all the challenges facing everyone involved as they attempted to teach Keiko to live, and thrive, in the wild. Jack Hanna, Director Emeritus, Columbus Zoo Host, Jack Hanna s Into the Wild and Wild Countdown --Jack Hanna "Jack Hanna's Into the Wild ""


Among the misinformation and cacophony regarding the public display and release of whales and dolphins, animal behavior and marine mammal expert, Mark Simmons, provides acompassionate and deeply challenging account of the failed experiment to release a killer whale named Keiko. In "Killing Keiko," Mr. Simmons sets the record straight and details why the unfortunate star of "Free Willy" was not ultimately a release candidate and why human agendas led to his death. This engaging, well-written and timely book is a sobering reminder that our human compassion for animals is not always well-conceived and that we need to better understand what our actions actually mean for such animals as opposed to what they mean for ourselves. A must-read for every animal lover out there. Gregory D.
