Loro Parque ultrasound footage on pregnant orca, Morgan

In the latest footage released by Loro Parque showing the developing calf, the park recognises they face quite a challenge with the upcoming birth due to Morgan’s deafness and this type of situation never occurring before with a captive orca (albeit it Morgan was born in the wild). Loro Parque has gone to great lengths to emphasise their experience with orca births, yet admit they have no idea how a deaf mother will care for her new-born calf.  Given their lack of experience with this particular situation, Loro Parque should never have allowed Morgan to become pregnant.
