Reports Protests Against Dolphins in the Desert

Over 100,000 people have signed a petition to oppose the housing of dolphins in pools that would allow people to ride and swim with them. The $20 million Dolphinaris development in the desert of Scottsdale, Arizona is set to open in July and protests at the attraction are scheduled for May 7th. Dolphins in a small environment can be harmful to people as well as the animals. The closed confinement, along with people in the same space, can make the dolphins bite, and there have even been incidents resembling sexual assault from the mammal.
