This seems like a total joke but truth is stranger than fiction.
Ukraine's navy apparently lost three dolphins from their training ground in the Black Sea off the coast of Crimea.
These military dolphins weren't just trained to find mines or anything, they were possibly armed with knives and guns!!

While this may seem like good news for dolphins, there is a catch-22 about being replaced.
For years, the United States Navy has trained dolphins and sea lions to locate enemy mines underwater as well as enemy divers.
Dolphins were trained to alert sailors of mines while sea lions placed claws on swimmers, forcing them to stop.
Now the Navy has made robots to help detect mines
