PETA's all over the Navy's use of dolphins for minesweeping. Money quote:
"The Navy is putting these animals intentionally in harm's way," said Stephanie Boyles, wildlife biologist at PETA. "These animals have no idea there is any danger to them, but we do. There are enough lives being lost in the war; we don't need to add another species to the list of lives being lost."Yes, that's right, the US Navy is going to the time, trouble, and expense of training the damn dolphins just so they can deliberately blow them up. For fun. Because they can. Evil, evil US Navy. When will the human hegemony over the animal kingdom end?
