You could ask anyone at seaworld that work with dawn and they would tell you the same thing, she had work with tilikum before. tilikum yes has killed one trainer in 1990 at sealand of the pacific and in 1999 a homeless man who avoided security, and jump into tilikum holding pool. Dawn was a great and a expert trainer, and you people keep or tarnishing her name , this is something that bothers those who knew her in a personal and professional level. I hate to sound rude but you leave me not much options. this particular documentary 15 percent of it true and 85 percent are lies. Dawnne was the best at what she did. she was one of the 5 top trainers the park had. rest in Peace Dawn April 16,1969 to February 24,2010

Dawn Brancheau one of the best people i knew , she was the senior trainer , as well as jenny , you could ask laura sorovic, and well as a participant in the movie black fish John Jett as well as jenny, or Holly or mark, Mark was the animal currator for a while and laura the assistant animal currator, Dawn was all about safety and make sure that everyone follow protocol to be safe, and during the dine in with shamu nothing was done out of protocol, and for this to even been publish is a waiste of time, have some respect for Dawnne who you never knew, and have choose not to let her rest in peace this Young lady Born april 16,1969 and whos life was taken due to lack of the pool having the bottom lift, to be able to lift tilikum up immediately its was cause her her life, she was never in the water with tili she was in a platform that off to the side of the pool its was not her first time doing this and this was not prohibited to trainers of her experience and for those who never had real interaction with tilikum. so who ever this investor is is a Jerk and idiot, all Blackfish did was made someone rich and underminding the reality of who Dawn really was.

Dawn was concern about safety always this particular documentary keeps on blaming Dawnee for this incident, dawn was all about safety for those of you who didnt know , i am so fed up with this, and grabriella cowperweigh Dawn was all about safety, ask anyone like Laura sarovic the currator of animal safety. and Jenny who held the same position as Dawn, this is something that was done every day nothing out of routine, so for who make this statement i say personally to him to go to hell
