Awesome to put a face to a name when we visited @skeletonmuseum last week. This is Kanduke, a male orca who formally resided at SeaWorld Orlando. He continues to educate at his new location.

@against.captivity - Today, September 20th 2016, marks the 26th anniversary of death of Kanduke.
Kanduke was a 19 year old male orca who was captured in British Columbia on August 16, 1975. He passed away on September 20, 1990 from Pneumonia.
Kanduke was captured along with a female orca who was named Nootka 3. A month after his capture, Kanduke was bought by Marineland Canada. Kanduke soon met Kandu 2 and Knootka. The three were trained and started performing at the parks King Waldorf Theatre. The park went on to acquire more orcas, but those three were the main performers.

Kandu 2 ended up passing away and Kanduke was sold to SeaWorld in 1987. Here he was reintroduced to Katina, who had lived at Marineland for a short time before being sold to SeaWorld. Kanduke was moved to the Orlando park where he met several new whales. After his arrival, he mated with Kona 2 and she became pregnant with their first calf. Sadly, Kona passed away while she was pregnant.

Katina also mated with Kanduke and she became pregnant. On November 4, 1988, Katina gave birth to a female calf named Katerina. Katerina passed away on May 5, 1999. Gudrun also gave birth to his last daughter, Taima, on July 11, 1989. Kanduke became a grandfather on May 14, 1998 when Taima gave birth to her son Sumar. Taima also gave birth to another son, Tekoa, and a daughter named Malia. Taima passed away on June 6, 2010 giving birth to her fourth calf.

Kanduke didn't perform often, though he had at Marineland and has also done waterworks there. He didn't do well with another male named Kotar. The two were involved in an incident where Kotar bit Kanduke's genitals. Kotar was later moved to another park. While it is not known if Kanduke was ever grouped with Katerina or Taima, he was grouped with Kalina when she was a young calf.

In mid September 1990, Kanduke started acting abnormal. Kanduke had come down with bacterial pneumonia and passed away on September 20 where he died at age 20.
May Kanduke Rest In Peace.

I think this song perfectly represents Kanduke. For example "when you've been fighting all your life." Represents him.

I just finished #BeneathTheSurface, & I'm equally moved by this firsthand heartwrenching look into the lives of Orcas in captivity as I was by #Blackfish. This is why I try & try to shed more light on what society fails to recognize as cruelty.

Above: Kanduke before his death, his teeth were almost non existent. Below: Kanduke's skeleton in a museum in Orlando with added fake teeth, evident by the discolouration. They also look more like the teeth of a resident than a transient orca.
Kanduke was a transient and SeaWorld's prime breeding bull, he died in 1990 at 15 due to Pneumonia (perhaps caused by the ST. Louis encephalitis virus transmitted by Mosquitos). His flesh was turned into pet food and fertiliser whilst his skeleton was put on display in an Orlando museum.

At some point his skeleton was doctored to make it appear like he has teeth, which in reality were destroyed by years of chewing on concrete and metal, and jaw popping.

It would seem Kanduke never retired from the public display industry, even in death. In life he was misrepresented as happy, healthy Shamu. In death his body has been doctored to continue this performance, to shine a positive light on the captivity industry.

For Kanduke the show goes on. ^

The Skeleton Museum: Animals Unveiled Orlando is now open at the I-drive 360 complex below The Eye. This skeleton belongs to a killer whale known as Kanduke.

This is #Junior he is my favourite deceased male #orca ,his story is heartbreaking, full of misery and cruelty.

Junior was a young male caught in #Iceland . Two years after his capture he went to #Marineland in #Canada ,the same place that currently keeps ailing #Kiska .

When Marineland attempted to put him on display he was constantly attacked by the other #orcas and so couldn't be used in shows. Instead Marineland chose to store him in a shallow pool in their warehouse until a buyer could be found. This warehouse is notorious for keeping several dolphins, as well as orca calves, including #Keiko and #Kanduke .

This pool was tiny, shallow and devoid off fresh air, sunlight and stimulation. Sound sensitive Junior had to endure a noisy overhead fan and the constant barking of sea lions in their pool just outside. Junior's only companion was the occassional dolphin shoved into an already too small pool.
No one was interested in buying Junior. Many of the staff didnt even know Junior existed because Marineland was reluctant to admit his existence which they still deny despite photographic and video evidence.

When Junior finally died in 1994 he was alone and was reportedly lethargic and psychotic, he was about 9-13 years of age. One source lists his cause of death as being due to a brain infection.

Junior lived a miserable life where he was forgotten and ignored but he will be remembered by #anticaps like me who want #justiceforjunior
