When Dolphins Go Bad

Monterey Bay researchers say dolphins are causing porpoise deaths - Santa Cruz Sentinel: "For the past five years, the growing number of dead harbor porpoises washing up on California shores has been a marine mystery -- until now.

In September, marine biologists with Okeanis, a nonprofit conservation group based in Moss Landing, captured the only video footage taken in Monterey Bay of bottlenose dolphins attacking and killing a porpoise."

You're incorrigible.

the interesting part is that the dolphins brought the carcass over to the researchers' boat, watched them haul it aboard and then left!!
a bit scary, no?
