Here's taking a stand!

Willie Nelson has cancelled an upcoming concert at Florida’s SeaWorld due to criticism from animal rights activists, surrounding the controversial doc Blackfish.

The event was scheduled for next year and it was supposed to be a part of SeaWorld's Bands, Brew & BBQ events.

Officially, he blamed scheduling conflicts, which is true if the schedule conflicts with his moral code! Ha! No, but really, it seems like it's just a growing trend in performers thinking twice before going ahead and performing at a park that keeps animals in captivity.

In fact, interestingly enough, The Barenaked Ladies have also snubbed the event over animal rights issues, saying:

Dolphins prefer to listen to Radiohead??

So, apparently dolphins are really into music… but only certain types of music!

The A-list dolphins at Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas get some seriously special treatment!

They have their own personal yoga instructor and their own music soundtrack.

So what's their favorite type of music??

Sitar music and… Radiohead!!

Maybe dolphins aren't so dumb after all!

Are Dolphins Actually Kinda Dumb??

Filed under: Science!Sea CreaturesDolphinsChickens

Are dolphins actually kinda dumb?? For realsies??

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

Dolphins are dumb.

Say whaaaaa?? We thought it was common knowledge that dolphins are crazy smart!!

Apparently chickens have some of the same behaviors as dolphins, which either means chickens are kinda smart or dolphins are a little on the dumb side.

Gregg wrote a book all about dolphin dumbness, claiming things like how when captured, goldfish will attempt to jump out of their bowl but when dolphins get caught, they never think to just jump out.

Hmm… that's kinda dumb, if true.

Dolphin lovers and scientists everywhere are obviously rushing to the dolphins' defense.
