SeaWorld will resume orca shows tomorrow while the company conducts a review of the events leading to a trainer's death at the Florida park. The "Shamu Believe" show will go on, but trainers will not be allowed in the water with the killer whales until after the review is complete. The park is keeping Tilikum, the orca responsible for trainer Dawn Brancheau's death, but employees have been instructed to give him a wide berth, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
