   Marineland of the Pacific, California (1960s): Pilot whale “Bimbo” described as “psychotic” by Dr. M.E. Webber, a physician with an interest in whale and dolphin research. “Bimbo” was released August 1967 - after seven years in confinement - following incidents of aggression toward other animals and keepers, and having broken observation windows.  (Duane Valentry, Big Star All at Sea, Sea Frontiers, September 1969, pp. 219-223)
