Sea World is under heavy criticism after a YouTube video of a pilot whale went viral. The recorder, Carlo De Leonibus, was at the park enjoying time with his daughter when he noticed a whale on a concrete ledge struggling to get back into the water for almost half an hour. The crowd went wild seeing one of Sea World’s creatures not receiving any sort of help from its trainers. When the crowd would not settle down a voice came over the intercom and stated they were aware of the situation and that the animal's behavior is normal. When Leonibus approached a trainer, the trainer told him that they leave the whales there so they can learn how to get down. The audience and many YouTube viewers are still not pleased with the actions Sea World took.
