    1. couldn’t have said it any better… unless they are endangered and in some last gasp breeding program, let’s leave the wild animals in the wild shall we?

  1. “Shadow, an eight-year-old dolphin, appeared very distressed and disoriented AFTER the event, and was later found dead.” – sounds to me like the party being over is what killed him. I know how you feel shadow

  2. Oh well, in my heyday under the influence, throwing a rave next to marine life would probably have seemed completely logical! But dolphins dying makes me sad, cheers flipper

  3. And not anyone working at the Marine Park opted that this might that this might not be a very good idea. What kind of aquatic specialists are employed there? the Pet Shop Boys?

  4. Dolphins have no hands, so they weren’t able to poke their ears out with a pencil. Personally I think the dolphin took the easy way out.
