In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying

"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Rogue Dolphin, Alone After Katrina, Menaces Lake Area

Rogue Dolphin, Alone After Katrina, Menaces Lake Area - Yahoo!A menacing animal is terrorizing residents of an upscale waterfront community just outside New Orleans. But it's not your run-of-the-mill beastly wild animal. Instead, it's a sweet-faced bottle-nosed dolphin and hospital officials say he's already taken a bite out of three people who have entered the waters of Lake Pontchartrain in Slidell, La.

BP's spill wouldn't have anything to do with this I wonder? But NOAA and other officials suggest the dolphin's behavior is due to a combination of factors: being used to humans, young male, in distress from pain, illness. . .
