Filed under: PETAInjuryScary!DolphinsSea World

dolphin biting girl at seaworld

Looks like this Flipper flipped out!

While visiting San Antonio's SeaWorld, a 9-year old girl was reportedly petting a dolphin at their Dolphin Cove where petting is allowed, when the dolphin allegedly bit her hand so tightly, that her mother was unable to free her from its clutches.

In fact, it took a SeaWorld employee to extricate her from the mouth of the beast. Okay, dolphins aren't beasts, but still…scary stuff! We knew dolphins had sex for fun, but gnawing on little girls? Keep it classy, guys!

Now, PETA is asking

Are dolphins actually kinda dumb?? For realsies??

Justin Gregg is a biologist who has a pretty unpopular theory:
