Captive dolphin plans wrong

If someone is greedy enough, and wants something badly enough, perhaps they can convince themselves of anything to ease their conscience.

In the 15 June edition of the Caymanian Compass, Mr. Crighton is quoted as saying that dolphins ‘have more space than they need’ in a 120-foot by 200-foot lagoon.

What nonsense and complete wilful blindness!

No amount of scientific evidence or emotive pleading is going to convince some people of anything other than what they want to believe.

So let it just be said, this project is cruel and unnatural for dolphins, and you too would jump and do tricks if it were the only way you could be fed.

Would that be OK? Of course not.

Anyone with an ounce of compassion for life and nature knows it in relation to human beings and dolphins.

It is merely a money-making scheme to line the pockets of the already wealthy. Does no one in a position of authority have the courage to stop this ridiculous venture?

I guess not; how terribly disappointing.
