This morning, I was saddened to hear of the death of Keiko, the killer whale who starred in the Free Willy-movies, of pneumonia, in a Norwegian fjord. He was only 27, when it's believed that killer whales can live to any age between 50 and 90. Poor Keiko. He'd only been freed 5 years ago himself, and doesn't appear to have enjoyed it much. He kept returning to humans for company. I hope he's gone to a better place.
