Killer whale ‘committed suicide’ by repeatedly ramming head against tank…

HUGO the killer whale was said to have been so unhappy in his captivity at an aquarium that he slammed his head into the wall of his tank until he died.

The orca suffered a brain aneurysm after repeatedly ramming against the edge of his enclosure in a case often cited by animal rights activists as proof whales should not be kept at sea parks.

The Sun Online looks at Hugo’s story after another killer whale — named Kiska — was filmed smashing her head against the side of her tank in a chilling echo of the tragic orca.
