If you're a dolphin (are you?), the Gulf of Mexico isn't exactly the place you want to be right now. The dolphins there are already dealing with a myriad of health issues stemming from the Deepwater Horizon explosion, and since June, a number of dolphins have washed ashore after having been killed and mutilated. The latest incident happened this past Friday, when researchers in Gulfport, Miss. found a dolphin whose lower jaw had been removed.
This came on the heels of a dolphin who was found last weekend after having been shot with a 9mm bullet. Over the course of the year, a dolphin has been found after being slashed by a knife, another was stabbed to death by a screwdriver and one had its tail cut off. One possibility is that dolphin-on-dolphin violence has erupted after military-trained killer dolphins escaped into the wild after Hurricane Katrina or some asshole/a group of assholes is spending his time massacring dolphins.
"Animals don't eat each other's tails off," Solangi said.
"We think there's someone or some group on a rampage," he said. "They not only kill them but also mutilate them."
Agreed! So, what the fuck is going on, Alabama/Mississippi/Louisiana? Who is shooting dolphins with handguns and STABBING them with SCREWDRIVERS?
