Horror moment SeaWorld’s ‘sex-mad’ orca mauls the trainer like a ‘cheap old toy’ for a minute in front of the shocked crowd.

HORRIBLE footage captures the moment a ‘sex-mad’ SeaWorld orca viciously mauls its trainer, throwing him around like a ‘cheap pool toy’.

Thousands of horrified spectators watched as the orca launched a ferocious attack on its trainer Steve Aibel.

The SeaWorld show in San Antonio, Texas, began like any other on July 27, 2004.

But it ended in shocking fashion when the normally gentle orca Kyuquot – descendant of the infamous SeaWorld killer whale Tilikum – turned on Steve.

SeaWorld has since changed its policy and trainers can no longer swim with the giant mammals.

Luckily, the train escaped unharmed and The Shamu Adventure show was canceled for the rest of the day.

SeaWorld always insists its orcas receive top-notch care and denies that they are aggressive — with the animals receiving “positive reinforcement” on a daily basis, along with the support of hundreds of care specialists.

In the clip, the giant killer whale stops obeying its trainer’s commands and keeps beating the helpless man.

Every time the trainer tries to catch his breath, the giant creature forces him back under the water.

A bystander watching said Kyuquot also tried to take a bite out of Steve – his trainer who he had known for 10 years.

Helpless SeaWorld employees watched as the attack lasted several minutes before Steve was somehow able to climb out.

Kyuquot seemed frustrated after watching Steve escape and causing huge splashes in the water.

Steve later blamed Kyuquot’s “youth hormones” for the attack.

Vets believed the whale was approaching breeding age and may have felt threatened by the trainer’s presence.

Park visitor Justin Lecourias, who witnessed the attack, said it was clear beforehand that something was wrong.

“The whale jumped all over the place, then tried to bite the guy,” he said.

Miraculously, Steve was able to climb out of the pool unharmed after the attack and spoke about his experiences.

He said, “17 years of training with animals and I’ve never had an experience like this.”

Steve said he was desperately trying to remain calm during the attack, which he says saved his life.

“It looked like Ky lost focus a bit,” he said. “I was not afraid. I think the calm throughout the process helped put Ky at ease.”

He added that Kyuquot was nearing breeding age, which may account for his erratic behavior.

After the attack, Kyuquot was reportedly banned from any future work with coaches.

Another angle that appears to show the same attack shows screams from the crowd as Steve wrestles with the orca.

The video – dubbed for the TV show Top 20 Most Shocking Moments – shows the dramatic announcer describing the trainer as being tossed around like a “cheap pool toy”.

Members of the crowd can be heard shouting “holy s***” and saying “Cover your eyes kids”.

It has been claimed that some of the adult male orcas at SeaWorld San Antonio were suffering from conditions caused by lack of space and prolonged periods above the water surface.

In 2015, wildlife doctor Dr. Heather Rally the park and noticed that some killer whales had collapsed dorsal fins, a condition rarely seen in the wild.

She also identified rake marks on several of the six orcas in San Antonio, noting that most had some form of dental trauma.

Both are uncommonly found in wild killer whales, suggesting the animals fought out of frustration.

Killer whales in the wild do not target humans for prey, and “there have been no documented cases of killer whales attacking a human in the wild,” according to the American Cetacean Society.

Unfortunately, Kyuquot’s behavior was not an isolated incident involving a captive orca.

In 1987, “jealous” killer whale Orky crushed a trainer at SeaWorld San Diego in horrific scenes captured on video.

The sickening clip shows Orky, a 12,000-pound male orca, crushing SeaWorld trainer John Sillick under his weight while a terrified crowd looks on.

Sillick, 26, nearly died from a fractured pelvis, femur and ribs and was left in a wheelchair after the horrific incident on November 21, 1987.

In the years that followed, SeaWorld greatly changed its practices and stopped holding such shows.

A SeaWorld spokesman previously told The Sun Online, “Trainers have not in-water trained or played with orca at SeaWorld since 2012.”

They continued, “Our hundreds of veterinarians and grooming specialists provide world-class medical care.

“None of the killer whales in our care live solitary lives and they attend positive reinforcement sessions daily and engage in a range of different activities to ensure they get plenty of physical and mental exercise.

“Additionally, the study of orcas in our care by our scientists and third-party organizations has directly impacted the world’s knowledge of and ability to protect whales in the wild.”

The Sun Online has reached out to SeaWorld for comment.
