A newborn killer whale calf has died at SeaWorld San Antonio after being treated for a serious infection over the weekend, the water park announced Monday afternoon. Kyara's mother, Takara, was pregnant at the time of the announcement.

Twitter (TWTR) has exploded with anti-SeaWorld comments, many blaming the company for Kyara's death and calling for SeaWorld to shut down its parks and release its animals to seaside sanctuaries.

"Additionally, the team was hand-feeding her in an effort to ensure she received the nutrition she needed".

Suspension of six MPs: United opposition protests inside & outside Parliament
She said all this had happened despite she agreeing to a discussion on the issue of alleged atrocities against Dalits and Muslims. Mallikarjun Kharge called the decision against his party members "harsh".

Julie Sigman, the SeaWorld trainer for orcas said: "Kyara had a tremendous impact on each of her care staff, not to mention all of the guests that had the chance to see her".

Kyara was the last orca born in captivity at the park after the company announced it would end its breeding program a year ago.

SeaWorld announced the end of its breeding program in March 2016, following years of pressure from animal rights protests and shifting public opinion about orcas being held in captivity. Tilikum died in January.

Those increases shave 0.2 seconds off the old XJR's 4.4-second 0-60 miles per hour run, and are good for a 186-mph top speed. The updated XJR575 houses the same 5.0-litre, supercharged V8 petrol engine but pack more punch than its predecessor.

Kyara died surrounded by SeaWorld staff.

Two of the deaths happened at SeaWorld Orlando, a man who trespassed into the park and Tilikum's trainer Dawn Brancheau who was killed in 2010.

SeaWorld has 22 orcas left in the U.S. The youngest, Amaya, was born in December 2014. Cromwell and other activists are said to have high jacked SeaWorld's "Orca Encounter" show using megaphones to inform the audience about SeaWorld's history of premature orca deaths.

Warrant issued for arrest of Cowboys' Whitehead
The Cowboys either aren't buying Whitehead's story or they don't care anymore because he's now been released from the team. With another court hearing scheduled in the next two weeks, the Dallas Cowboys decided they had enough of Whitehead.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals released a statement on Monday night, saying: "SeaWorld executives have dollar signs where their eyes should be".
