The MGM Mirage is investigating the death of a dolphin in one of their attractions. 13 have died since the attraction opened in 1990 (including 5 stillborn or died shortly after birth ). They're part of Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat.

So what do you think about animals, particularly ones thought to possess intelligence, being used in this manner?

I want these majestic, intelligent, creatures set free.
Here in Florida, about two months ago we had a 30 year female dolphin die,
and one injured at a show for 27 people, at Discovery Cove.
The trainers got their signals crossed, and Sharky (that was the dolphin's name) died on impact.
When pressed for information about Sharky, the trainers could not remember if she was captured for research and presentation, or if she was captivity bred. How unbelievably sad.


The only time an animal ever needs to be captured, is when humans have so damaged their ability to reproduce, so damaged their environment...Since we are their destroyers,
It is up to us to help them survive.
