Corky 2 was treated like a breeding machine at Marineland, even after she failed to nurse the first two. Kiva is the most well known of Corky’s calves. Kiva was born on June 16th 1982, the fourth calf to Corky and Orky. She did not nurse, and only lived for 46 days. Orky and Corky drowned their daughter Kiva on August 3rd 1982. Corky went on to have 3 more calves after Kiva, two were miscarriages.

    The tank at marine land as too small to allow for proper nursing maneuvers which didn’t help the situation.
