Dolphins have been declared the world’s second most intelligent creatures after humans, with scientists suggesting they are so bright that they should be treated as “non-human persons”.
Studies into dolphin behaviour have highlighted how similar their communications are to those of humans and that they are brighter than chimpanzees. These have been backed up by anatomical research showing that dolphin brains have many key features associated with high intelligence.
The researchers argue that their work shows it is morally unacceptable to keep such intelligent animals in amusement parks or to kill them for food or by accident when fishing. Some 300,000 whales, dolphins and porpoises die in this way each year.

its so sad what people do to animals, and all because they think they are superior or more entitled than animals.

Why not train them to hunt in packs and take down emeny subs?...But then they might rebel and declare nuclear war on humans

WoW these scientists are retarded.
ALL lifeforms are non-human persons.
Holy crap this is 1st grade logic here. Duh.
If anyone failed to realize that other lifeforms are non-human persons, I fail to recognize their intelligence.
