[quote:Anonymous Coward 25773843:MV8yMDY5MDI5XzM0ODE5MjM0XzFGRTk0RUI5] [quote:Leslie Zevo:MV8yMDY5MDI5XzM0ODE4MjIxX0NFMjRFQzEy] Dolphin was just after the fucking fish. Keep feeding dolphins like that and flinging your hands around they'll expect a fish. He was just following the pattern. [/quote] We are all pelted with warm, tender, fuzzy-wuzzy images of dolphins. They are, in fact, powerful and intelligent animals. Often kind - sometimes not so kind. They are not lapdogs. I met some at the Baltimore aquarium. It was my first time. I, too, had only known the fuzzy-wuzzy angle. How incorrect that is. I met dolphins who were polite but sized me up to see if they wanted to bother. I met tough-minded beings who seemed to be tolerating the attention, rather than enjoying it. One was just having a bad day the aquarium staff said. A couple seemed to fit the fuzzy-wuzzy profile. In other words, dolphins are just as different and complex as humans are. It is a mistake to treat them like animate, stuffed toys. I left loving them just as much as before and with a lot more respect. Dolphins probably handle their captivity better then humans would. Humans expect dolphins to be what human expectations want them to be. If the girl had been feeding monkeys and had been bitten, would there be such a ruckus? No. We expect monkeys to act like wild animals. Dolphins are supposed to be "better" than wild. The little girl was lucky. If the dolphin really wanted to hurt her, she would have been hurt. If the dolphin wanted her in the water, that's where she would have gone. A kid falling on the sidewalk and scraping herself could look and be a lot worse. The problem here is that a false romance has been shattered. She should not have been waving a fishy smell tray out toward the dolphin. [/quote]
The incident occurred during a Nov. 21 visit to SeaWorld Orlando. Jillian Thomas was feeding the dolphins fish when she held up her paper tray and said it was empty. That’s when a dolphin lunged out of the water and sank its teeth into Jillian’s arm, pulling her toward the pool before letting go.
Her father, Jamie Thomas, uploaded the footage to YouTube on Saturday, posting, “We wanted to share this video so others can make an informed decision about whether or not the risks to yourself or your child are worth the experience.”
Thomas told WKMG-TV he quickly rushed to his daughter’s side, fearing she’d be pulled into the water.
“We think that attraction at SeaWorld is dangerous and it was traumatic for us to go through that event,” he said. Read more [
