Dolphins Collide During SeaWorld Trick

Collision Indicates Animals May Not Be As Smart As Previously Thought

Two dolphins collided during a SeaWorld exhibition resulting in the death of one of the animals and a last minute change to the seafood special in the SeaWorld cafeteria.

SeaWorld officials term the mishap a “freak accident” noting it is only under extremely rare circumstances in the wild that two dolphins will leap through a hula hoop suspended 30 feet above the water.

Grief counselors will be made available at SeaWorld’s Orlando location in an effort to help the other dolphins deal with the loss of their school mate. In the meantime, tourists at SeaWorld have marveled at the other dolphins’ ability to smile continually throughout the ordeal.

Charles Schumer (D, Publicty Whore, NY) called for stricter Federal regulation to prevent any future dolphin accidents and criticized the FAA for not making regular inspections of airborne dolphins.

    whoever wrote this is trying to be a joke and is really mean. its not cool to make fun of dolphins or to make them a seafood special after their death. guess wat whoever wrote this, i hope u never make progress in doing these writings again to make fun of things.

    i think dolphins are trusty worthy and cute.sometimes they can be a best friend .i consider them better than humans in some cases because they are so innocent something that people cant do.i love dolphins so much i would want to have one as a pet i know its not possible but i think they are the best creatures alive.
