Don't feed wild dolphins... or throw bombs at them
I posted a couple days ago about National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration' new public service announcement warning people not feeding wild dolphins. For their next PSA, perhaps NOAA should consider adding a warning about not throwing bombs at them either. According to the Bizarre Florida blog, a Panama City boat captain received a two-year sentence in prison for possession of explosives by a convicted felon and taking or attempting to take marine mammals. The man apparently admitted making pipe bombs that he would throw at dolphins to try to scare them away from his fishing lines.
