if anyone is to blame its either the sea world staff for not explaining the correct procedure for feeding a dolphin safely or whoever was supposed to be supervising the child

I hope her Parents don't leave her with scars. Explaining to her that this is what happens to Wild animals locked up, would be a great way to have her not hate Dolphins for the rest of her life.
Gentle Creatures like this should not be used as an attraction. MHO

Amen to that sonnny. A backwards world these parents live in, I wonder how they tie their own shoes when they fall out of their beds every morning.

I didn't get that the impression that the report was intentionally skewed against the dolphin per se, but merely questioning the safety practices of Sea World.
I would be horribly upset if that were my child. I understand the thoughts of you guys saying,'oh, it's just a little bite.....". Maybe Sea World could use this as a way to better identify ways to avoid such unfortunate "mistakes" by getting rid of the food trays. For pete's sake, the kid wasn't doing anything intentional to make the dolphin bite her. What if it was a toddler? They could have been accidently pulled in the water.
Sorry, I think this is a good example of needing to improve safety measures.

to be honest the parents are douches... "the attraction is dangerous.." So you got bit a little from a dolphin...you can get hurt worst by tripping and falling on the street. Some small cuts and a bruise.... sheesh.... americans would sue anything to make money...
