Why are Orcas valued over Cows?

“The oldest known orca has recently been spotted off western Canada at an age of 103. A female nicknamed ‘granny,’ photos exist of her from the 1930s, where she can be identified by her distinctive saddle patch. The news has prompted calls for another evaluation of marine mammals in captivity – orcas in captivity usually don’t live beyond their 20s.”

If orcas living to only 20% of their natural lifespan in water parks is a problem, why isn’t a dairy cow being intentionally killed after less than 20% of her potentially 20 year lifespan a much worse problem?
