Arbitrator rules on Keiko's care

   NEWPORT, Ore., Jan. 8 (UPI) -- Officials say (Thursday) an
arbitrator has settled a heated dispute between the aquarium that
houses the killer whale who starred in the first "Free Willy" movie
and the foundation that had cared for him. The arbitrator says the
Oregon Coast Aquarium should be involved in providing Keiko's
day-to-day care under the direction of the Free Willy Keiko
Foundation's medical and rehabilitation plans.
