SeaWorld Dolphin Dies Performing Trick In Front Of Show Crowd


www.local6.com

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A SeaWorld dolphin died after it collided with another dolphin during an aerial show trick performed in front of a crowd.
Officials said the dolphin, called Sharky, hit the other dolphin during a Sunday show at SeaWorld's Discovery Cove. The accident was apparently a freak accident.
Sharky was a 30-year-old female dolphin that had performed the trick dozens of times, officials said.

Not that i think this is anything other than an attempt at drawing emotional anguish towards to poor animal's demise, but what do you reckon are the possibilities the dolphin committed suicide as a way of showing humans that we're .ed down a dark alley in an area of the neighbourhood known for people ending up with holes in them?

So her message was "So long, and thanks for all the fish."?

I doubt she committed suicide, but it is still extremely sad. The saddest thing is that if we didn't have her in captivity performing tricks for children, she wouldn't have died this way. Granted, she may have died in a tuna net, or by a large shark, but not in a mid-air collision with a fellow inmate.

Well, this just proves my theory that females lack coordination and therefore are inherently bad drivers. Just my 2¢.

It's only natural selection if nature intended for dolphins to exist in giant glass tanks performing tricks for people......

I dont think any animal deserves to be placed in a glass tank and forced to preform the same old stunts 20 times a day, what a life.

It's sad to know that the dolphin had to die this way. I think she got sick and tired of taking commands from the 'keepers'. May she rest in peace with other dolphins and away from that virtual prison in a glass tank that they call, 'home'.

:w:

I think this is terrible. Very sad indeed.

However, i'm inclined to believe that she wanted to die. I don't think animals enjoy being tied up and confined. I think they love the open waters or jungle whatever it may be.

May she rest in peace.
