In Russia, the capturing of killer whales in the wild is still permitted. In late 2013, three killer whales were captured- a mother and two younger whales. Initially it was thought that these whales would be trained in a holding pen in Russia for a performance at the Winter Olympics in Sochi. However, it is currently understood that the juveniles were sold to China on an export permit. China has recently constructed a $5 billion "Ocean Kingdom" modeled after SeaWorld.
