I hope the ban stays in place for good. SeaWorld created an animal with no history of aggression toward people in the wild into a killer. They have abused these animals beyond belief. Unfortunately people still find it amusing to see orcas jumped on, surfed on, ridden, and forced to do circus tricks to make them appear human (i.e. nod their heads yes/no, kiss, stick out their tongue, etc). It's really quite repulsive. If trainers get in the water again we'll read about another death at SeaWorld sooner or later and it's no fault of the orca.
