(Newser) – Tommy Lee's seen some crazy stuff in his time but nothing to match Sea World's treatment of a "sperm bank" killer whale, the Motley Crue drummer writes in an angry letter to the park. Sea World claims Tillikum—an orca that has killed 3 people—no longer has direct contact with trainers, despite the fact that he is masturbated by them, "which is about as direct as it gets," the PETA supporter writes in a letter obtained by TMZ.

"We understand you refuse to release this frustrated whale because he is your chief sperm bank, and we know from SeaWorld's own director of safety ... that the way you get his sperm is by having someone get into the pool and masturbate him with a cow's vagina filled with hot water," Lee writes "Even in my wildest days with Motley Crue, I never could've imagined something so sick and twisted."
