In our paper this morning is an article about 4 dolphins that had survived the Hurricane in Biloxi (you may have seen them on TV), they were being kept in an aquarium in Ft. Walton Beach, FL. The aquarium in Biloxi was devastated and will not be reopening anytime soon so the owner sold the dolphins to the Atlantis Resort.
Problem is that since the hurricane, one of the dolphins had developed a disease that in most cases is deadly. She was however on the road to recovery until last night. The Atlantis Casino decided that they needed the dolphins for promotional purposes so decided to take the three healthy ones and leave the sick one. The trainersand vets say that without her pod the sick dolphin will most certainly die.
I find this to have been a disgusting greedy decision. I can hardly see how the guest of the Atlantis would have noticed if these these dolphins didn't show up for another month.
