A trained dolphin attempted either an escape or suicide at Okinawa's Churaumi Aquarium: The rogue creature catapulted himself over the edge of the tank and flopped onto the sidewalk before a crowd of screaming onlookers.

Or, as Japan News Today puts it on their YouTube channel, "Tired of entertaining stupid kids day after day this dolphin tries to escape or die trying."
