Dolphin's are assholes and rapists.

Lucky the kid didn't have a blond ponytail that looks vaguely like a fish.

So I guess orcas and dolphins CAN communicate.
 
2012-12-02 03:21:04 AM  
Huh. Maybe if she wasn't holding the fish behind her hand, she wouldn't have been bitten when the dolphin tried to get at it.
 
2012-12-02 03:21:07 AM  
At least they didn't try to gang rape her.

He's probably a vet. Now that the Navy is downsizing the cetacean program in favor of drones, he's going to lose his benefits.

My parrot bites me all the time. However, the bites quite consciously vary in their force depending on the message that is intends to communicate. I assume it is the same in this instance. It is silly to say the dolphin bit the girl. The real question is what the dolphin was communicating, and how forceful was the bite?

Considering that dolphins are known to kill motherfarking sharks, and that their main weapon is ramming, not biting, it's doubtful it was even intentional. Three small puncture wounds? Out of a mouth full of teeth?

Jillian was left with three small puncture wounds.


So ... I'm assuming they won't let this kid have puppies, kittens, bunnies, and especially not ponies ... not yours.

THIS. The main thing when dealing with animals is that no matter how well trained and good-natured they are, they're still animals. Animals can be unpredictable.

Watched the video, and it just looked like the dolphin got overzealous trying to get some fish. Having eyes on the side of your head can throw your aim off

Good.

I hope the dolphins sue her ass off.

Inedible biatch.

The girl wasn't paying attention. She turned her head away while holding a huge chunk of food and the dolphin jumped at the opportunity.
Doesn't look like anything out of the ordinary though. I've made this mistake in the past hand feeding treats to hungry dogs.

Ever feed horses a carrot? The handler should make it clear that you're supposed to keep in in your open palm, with your fingers together. NOT holding the carrot between your fingers.

Because finger isn't THAT much harder than a carrot, to a horse. And the horse may make a mistake as to where the carrot ends and the fingers begin.

Wow, what shiathead parents. Their main concern wasn't the welfare of their child, it was filming the extent of the injuries for a potential lawsuit. Watching the video doesn't make me want to avoid seaworld (not that I was visiting anytime soon...), it just makes me want to dickpunch her father.

To me it looks like an accident. The girl moved the fish away from the dolphin, who appears to have lunged at where the fish used to be. Unfortunately that was now were her arm was.

Also, when the girl asks why she has to show her arm I imagined her dad thinking, "So we can sue the crap out of Sea World!"

It looks to me like it was just a fluke.

But seriously, all it takes is one freak accident and one self-righteous whiner, and everything gets wrecked for everyone else.

Hell yeah! Sure, she didn't get hurt too badly, but mental scars will last a lifetime. It's like winning the lottery!

Parents who video events instead of ensuring the safety of their children should be prosecuted.

Child endangerment should do.

She wasn't paying attention to a large predator while she was holding food in her hand. She came away lucky.

So...you're saying that you and your..."parrot"...have safe words.

I used to work at that god awful feeding pool. All day long we would repeat OVER AND OVER to not show the dolphins the white paper tray that the fish come in. And to not tease the dolphins by holding the fish over their heads. Then there were the people who would put fish in their mouth, hoping they could get a dolphin kiss (not many, but a few).

Best part of my job: rescuing and rehabilitating manatees, and releasing them back into the wild.

Worst part (and a big reason why I quit): Dolphin, farking. Cove. And the idiots who would not only ignore my instructions all day long, but would a) complain when I would correct them or b) pretend not to speak english (I HEARD you speaking english just before I approached you!!!). It's for your own safety, idiots.


Feeding pools are so outdated. Die, public feeds, die. Gah, my blood pressure goes up even thinking about this.
 
2012-12-02 06:10:42 AM  
Also, no I don't work at SeaWorld anymore.

And also, that movie "The Cove" is full of shiat. They implicated that SeaWorld obtained dolphins from Japan which is absolutely not true. Almost all of the wild caught dolphins in the US are dead now. We had at least 3 or 4 calves born a year. That was another thing that pissed me off, people trying to make me feel guilty for working there. First of all, I wanted to make the animals' lives the best that I could since they DID have to be in captivity. Lots of play, treats, rubs, general spoiling. Second of all, YOU PAID TO COME.

Usually the dolphins are smart enough to pin it on the sharks. That's how they've gotten away with eating people for so long.
 
2012-12-02 07:28:30 AM  
Don't guests at places like this get shown how to properly feed the animals?

/lived on a farm, and any person who wanted to take pictures of their kids feeding horses and purge animals we had, had to be shown how to not get their hands bitten by accident
//made sure everyone stayed away from the geese, those were vicious farks

No sh*t. Sounds like dad needs to figure out how the world works.

I was kicked in the balls by a domesticated rabbit as it investigated me while I laid on the couch. You think it hurts when your dog accidentally steps on your nuts? Yeah, you just don't know, man.

Came to say this. Seems many people know animals bite. That creatures smell better than they see.

A little common sense. I mean c'mon, you don't let your fingers anywhere near Aunt Matilda at the Thanksgiving table right?

I listened to the dolphin's side of the story, and it claims the hairless biped was headed right for it.

2012-12-02 08:45:55 AM  
I am very surprised that such interactions are not 100% unsupervised by the staff so, as we see in the video, a distracted child does not do something to increase the possibility of an accidental bite.
