SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A killer whale at SeaWorld San Antonio has died after suffering from a fungal infection.

The San Antonio Express-News reports the park said it would conduct a necropsy to determine the cause of the Monday death of the killer whale named Unna.

According to a news release, the 18-year-old whale contracted a strain of fungus called Candida and was under the care of the park’s veterinary team in recent months.

Unna is the third whale to die at the park in the past six months. The park canceled all killer whale shows Monday.

SeaWorld’s killer whale shows have been a source of controversy since the critical “Blackfish” documentary was released in 2013. The company announced last month that it was phasing out orca shows at its San Diego park.
