Marineland spectators could come down and feed Kiska during the killer whale's better days. She has suffered failing health for several years now and has been the subject of worldwide protests, demanding her release.

There are now no more orcas left in captivity in Canada after the death of Kiska at Marineland today (March 10).

The Niagara Falls theme park, presently up for sale, announced the killer whale’s passing, saying they will mourn the loss.

The 47-year-old whale has live at the park since 1979 and has been the subject of worldwide protest for animal lovers and activists for years now, demanding that Kiska be released back into the ocean.

Ironically, the whale’s death comes just a week after the park’s last remaining walrus and her baby were transferred to Sea World in Abu Dhabi.

Conditions at the park have been protested for more than a decade and Kiska was referred as “the loneliest orca in the world” by those demanding her release. Her health had been visibly failing for the past three years.
