In Ontario, Canada, Kiska, a killer whale, died on March 9th. She lived in captivity in MarineLand Park, which is located on Niagara Falls.

The tragic news was reported by the institution, writes Reuters.

MarineLand reported that Kiska's health deteriorated in recent weeks.

“The marine mammal care team and experts have done everything they can to keep Kiska comfortable and will mourn her loss,” the park notes.

Kisku captured in Irish waters in 1979.

She was about 47 years old.

Animal Welfare has checked Kiska's conditions 160 times since January 2020.

Animal rights group PETA described Kiska as “the world's loneliest killer whale” whose life was marked by “tragedy after tragedy” after all five of her cubs died before reaching the age of seven.
