Mod comment: This post refers to John1960's story re: the dolphin who bit the girl at the zoo. Post #109 below.


I hate to say it but it was the girls fault. When feeding the dolphins the people are told not to hold the paper containers over the water and in the video she is holding it and the dolphin sees it and naturally wants some fish. The dolphin quickly lets go and the girl only had a few small punctures...it's not like it attacked her and bit her arm off.

It always astounds me that people get so upset when things like this happen. Stupid humans put wild animals in captivity and then are surprised when they act like wild animals!
