The just-released 2006 video of a veteran trainer at SeaWorld being grabbed by his leg and dragged under water by a 5,000-pound killer whale indicates that the animal might have been trying to send a message, the journalist who obtained the video said.

"I think she was trying to tell him, 'Hey, I got to go take care of my kid ... she's calling for me, and I don't want to perform,'" said David Kirby, who made the video public for his new book, "Death at SeaWorld."

Ken Peters, then 39, was seen flailing helplessly as he is dragged underwater by Kasatka, a 30-year-old killer whale that he'd trained for years.
