Orca hunter turned whale rescuer shares his video

Attendance and profits have plunged again at SeaWorld. The company, which operates 11 theme parks, says its third quarter earnings fell 28 percent from a year ago and they had half-million fewer park visitors. That's all during what is supposed to be the busy summer months. SeaWorld's CEO says he is confident they're addressing the company's challenges. They are building larger tanks for its killer whales, the first expected to open in San Diego in four years. This comes after CNN aired the documentary "Blackfish" last year. The film raised questions of alleged animal abuse at its parks. SeaWorld Entertainment Group denies the allegations.

CNN's Ivan Watson got a unique view into how SeaWorld and other parks get their killer whales. For the first time on TV, a former whale hunter is sharing his video.
