    Zoo dolphins rescued

    In an “unheard of” rescue operation, eight dolphins that were swept out of their oceanarium by Hurricane Katrina have been rediscovered hundreds of yards out at sea where trainers are tracking, feeding and caring for them.

    “To find all eight of them on your doorstep is just unheard of,” said Moby Solangi, president of the Marine Life Oceanarium in Gulfport. “When we first saw them, they were really starving. When they saw their trainers, they were absolutely flipping.”

    The eight Atlantic bottlenose dolphins were swept out of their tank by the storm surge from Katrina, which then destroyed the oceanarium.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Does anyone else see the irony of "rescuing" them from the ocean so they can be returned to captivity?

    No I don't, it's been stated that they would have starved to death or been attached by sharks as they are domesticated and have no survival skills.

    I'm so happy they're now safe!

    I saw the clip earlier of the trainers just playing with them and stating how remarkable it was that they all stayed together. Good news.
