Lolita is a 43 year old captive killer whale (orca) living at the Miami Seaquarium in Florida. Since her capture in 1970, she has been kept in a tank that is illegal by the Animal Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) standards for size requirements.

They should be forced to triple the size of her tank and make it 'ecofriendly' for her - after 40 years she's probably got no memories of 'life in the wild' but deserves to be treated with respect and appreciation for the 'work' that she's done!!!
