Do They Have Frikkin' Laser Beams? They Better Have Frikkin' Laser Beams!


You've probably heard about the Navy-trained killer dolphins who escaped their Gulf-coast compound when Katrina hit:

It may be the oddest tale to emerge from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Armed dolphins, trained by the US military to shoot terrorists and pinpoint spies underwater, may be missing in the Gulf of Mexico.

Experts who have studied the US navy's cetacean training exercises claim the 36 mammals could be carrying 'toxic dart' guns. Divers and surfers risk attack, they claim, from a species considered to be among the planet's smartest. The US navy admits it has been training dolphins for military purposes, but has refused to confirm that any are missing.

Not to worry - they're training sharks to take 'em out! OK, fine, the article admits only that the Office of Naval Research funded the study and doesn't mention anything about weapons, but what do you expect from an unclassified article in the open literature?


Does Tim Bedore know about this?

This sounds to me like a daring escape by animal commandoes. The weapons they stole will be analyzed and reproduced by the animals for their war against humanity.

...the 36 mammals could be carrying 'toxic dart' guns.

"Could be?" You mean they don't KNOW if they are armed? Or do they not know with WHAT they are armed?

He did a bit about the dolphins on B&T last week, but I don't think he knows about the sharks yet...
