Amazon river dolphins being slaughtered for bait

Posted: July 10th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Dolphin | No Comments »

Now, you might be thinking “what do you have against dolphins”? I used to have NO problem with dolphins.. until I read that they can mate with whales, resulting in WOLPHINS! No joke. I read it on Yahoo. It must be true.

So because dolphins can help perpetuate the whales, they fall into the ‘anti’ bucket.

Apparently Amazonian river dolphins are being caught and and their flesh used as bait. Yanno.. people that live there.. first you destroy your rain forest, now you get rid of your river dolphins. I’m all for the latter, but really? You are going to run out of natural resources and that makes me sad, because you have some really unique natural resources.

Best line of the article: Simple economics exacerbates the problem: Killing dolphins is free, and their meat is valuable
