I get it. The dolphin living is worse than the lobster being killed. :blush: :rolleyes:

I guess I feel differently about an animal who is killed after a short life, like a mink for example...than a dolphin (a highly intelligent being) being kept in captivity for years and years. YMMV.

I have an idea that will make you feel better about it.

Let's raise the dolphins using tourist dollars, let them swim around with some kids until they reach a good butchering age, and then kill them so you can eat them. Makes much more sense.

I'd probably eat dolphin (never been offered any), but I don't want to swim with them in captivity. You're welcome to your opinion.

I think small fish like sardines also find them annoying.

I caught and ate a lot of dolphin last time I was in the Keys.

That's dolphinfish, a fish (as opposed to dolphins, mammals) - right?

I think we can all take a cue from Ron and lighten up.

Why aren't dolphins called "dolphinmammals", then? And do they get any royalties from Flipper?

That reminds me of a Christmas lights festival we used to have here called "Light Up Louisville!" It was sponsored by Brown & Williamson, a major tobacco company. Coincidence, I think not.
