I have no objection to taking the idiot ravers responsible, dropping them in the middle of a dolphin pod in the middle of the ocean, and letting the dolphins decide their fate.

And WTF is wrong with the zoo that it would have a rave there?? I'm not a hard core animal rights freak, but I do value and respect living things (even when I'm eating them). These animals have been taken out of the wild and confined to a swimming pool. The LEAST you could do is show some respect for them instead of treating them like toys. Grrrr...

This story just makes me angry all around. >:(

Although already done countless times, the OONTZ, OONTZ, headline nearly always makes me giggle. Probably because i'm retarded.

I mean, I've attended my share of raves and certainly consumed my share of drugs, but whoever approved a rave at a zoo needs to be fired. Even without the headline, hearing they died at a rave the first thought through my head was "oh god, who fed them drugs?" Though on that note, who does heroin (or a heroin substitute, whatever) at a rave? It's not really a party drug...

Something about a rave at a zoo. You should know that would end poorly in three dozen different scenarios.

In case they're only mostly dead, they should try the voodoo cure to bring the dolphins back to life:

Sedate a lion, but not into unconsciousness, and jump over him three times with three fledgeling seagulls in a basket. On the next full moon, put the baby seagulls in the dolphin's mouth. It should come back to life and henceforth be invulnerable to harm.

Of course, you'll be in violation of the Mann Act--transporting young gulls across a staid lion for immortal porpoises.

No kidding. Everyone involved made shiatty decisions, from the people who captured the dolphins, to those who keep them imprisoned, to idiots who go see them in captivity thus keeping the cycle going, to the morons who allowed a rave to be held nearby, to the farking assholes who gave the dolphins drugs. This is one giant clusterfark of human failure.
 
2012-05-07 10:23:49 PM  
Seriously: fark the zoo for keeping captive dolphins in the first place.
fark the zoo for allowing a rave on or near their premises, let alone near an aquatic exhibit. fark the ravers for being a**holes and acting well... like ravers. fark the local municipality for allowing it all to happen.

Mixing heroin and coke (speedball, feels close to an extacy high) was pretty popular at the clubs in the 90's....

If Zoos truly cared for the well being of the animals, they'd have just left them in the wild instead of imprisoning them as curiosities for slackjawed humans.

Their only real concern is that the animals look good and don't die, to bring in more customers. I'm sure this zoo isn't upset about them dying so much as annoyed they have to buy more dolphins.
 
2012-05-07 10:29:06 PM  
Anyone that's ever witnessed a rave, especially after lights come on, would have known this was a bad idea.

I've had a really shiaty couple of weeks and that made me giggle. Thank you.

FTFA: This would seem to confirm initial suspicions that whacked-out ravers fed the dolphins drugs while possibly on some kind of weird acid trip.

I blame whoever invited the Japanese. I mean sure, it is hilarious to listen to them say "Lave" but not at the cost of a dolphins life.

I don't share drugs with dolphins. They always complain they didn't get enough. It's not my fault you weigh so much, dolphin!

I thought the Swiss were control freaks? But I suppose since the dolphins were born out of country, they were expendable.

Sick farks, everyone involved in this story.

I love it, those rave party tickets are spendy. The zoo probably thought they were making some easy cash. Take away zoo: Don't let drug crazed kids near your animals, they tend not to make the best decisions.

Poor dolphins. If only they could develope opposable thumbs, there wouldn't be this problem.

HOLY SH+T.......

Rave should have just been held on Second Life. That way, the only casualties would have been caused by wrist-cutting.

I think it's pretty clear that Techo Viking is most likely out there hunting down these dolphin killers as we speak.

mamoru: And WTF is wrong with the zoo that it would have a rave there??


The Oregon Zoo has concerts every week of the summer in the zoo. I'm sure someone at the Jack Johnson show probably slipped brownies to at least one of the exhibits. The real question is who the fark lets people get close enough to give heroin to a dolphin?

I mean, it seems like it would be easier to hit a dolphin with a lawnmower than to shoot it up.
 
2012-05-07 10:45:58 PM  
Tell that serial killer whale about this, then drop the kids into his tank for a few laps.

He'll know what to do with them.

davidphogan: I mean, it seems like it would be easier to hit a dolphin with a lawnmower than to shoot it up.


To be fair, it was a heroin-substitute, and it's not like shooting up is the only method... I'm going to assume something like methadone or suboxone, in which case you'd just feed it to them.

You're doing it wrong.

Buprenorphin / suboxone got it in one bakageta

i actually read the article

I think they fed the dolphins drugs just in case anyone forgot the real reason for raves is drugs not music

2012-05-07 11:02:04 PM  
Here's my theory: the zoo staff fed the dolphins sedatives and killed them because who the hell knows how to adjust dosages for dolphins? It may have been at the behest of the person in charge, or perhaps an employee was opposed to the rave and thought he was doing the dolphins a favor by sedating them. What I don't get is, why buprenorphine and not heroin? It doesn't make any sense, if you're trying to quit drugs you don't go to raves (and that is what buprenorphine is most frequently used for, aside from pain treatment). Someone wanted to sedate the dolphins and they used prescription medication because they thought it would be safer, and maybe they didn't have drug connections anyway. Now they're going to blame the ravers, and they'll probably get away with it. If it was ravers it would've been MDMA or ketamine or something like that. Maybe cocaine. Pretty much any drug other than the one responsible, basically.

It was a boneheaded move having a rave at a zoo anyway, though. It's one of those things that should have been obvious. This is pretty much the best case scenario.
 
2012-05-07 11:02:30 PM  
Too obscure?
 
2012-05-07 11:04:45 PM  
They need to have these raves at someplace like Disneyland where all the animals are animatronic.
