NOAA spokeswoman Allison Garrett told CNN that the most recent prosecution involved a Panama City, Florida, man who was convicted of throwing pipe bombs at dolphins

I can't even wrap my head about that.... I mean, maybe there is some sort of background on this... was he a commercial fisherman and he was sick of Dolphins getting stuck in his nets, or something of that sort? At least then there is some "reasoning" behind it, even if it doesn't excuse it, at least there is somewhat understandable motivation.

But, if it was just some guy that went "ugh, wouldn't it be cool to throw a pipe bomb at a dolphin"... WTF.

Hmm... $20,000 fine for killing a Dolphin, but you can get a life sentence for killing some ignorant redneck. Doesn't seem right...

I've seen this story in several places. The article always starts with, "authorities have no idea why people are doing this" or some such thing, while someone in the comments section is quick to point out that commercial fishmen will cut sharks and such out of their nets.

Do commercial boats not cut sharks out of nets? Is that an urban legend?

Hiking in N. GA, Amicalola Falls, on a touristy trail. Off the trail near a creek, a snake was sunning on a rock. Several members of a family, which appeared to be of the local variety, started throwing rocks at the snake and even left the trail in attempt to increase their chances of a hit.
Not all the locals are like that, most, including the hunters, respect wildlife, but it's the morans who leave a lasting impression.

/waits for comma police

"Commercial fisherman arrested for illegal possession of explosives and unlawful taking of marine mammals. He built homemade pipe bombs and threw them at dolphins while fishing." - Crimes Against Marine Mammals page.

My guess is that either they were farking up his nets, or stealing his catch, or something of that nature.

Sounds to me like a professional hit and they dumped the bodies after the fact.

So a dolphin was stabbed with a screwdriver??!?!? Evidently he was from the Miami projects.

Charter boat captains will shoot dolphins all day long. The dolphins chase the boats because they know that boats means chum means fish means easy lunch; dolphins chasing the fish makes it nearly impossible to catch them, since the fish go into OHSHI RUN AWAY mode instead of OHBOYFREELUNCH mode... no one catches any fish, the captain looks like an arse, he loses business and there you go.

Not ok. And I'm very glad I live in an area where all we have to deal with is the seals that winter out here and munch on the seasonal herring run, because if someone shot a dolphin from any charter boat I was on I'd be in jail for assaulting that person.

You might want to re-think that stance. Dolphins are as ass-holish as people.

The top comment on that video is outrageously stupid.

"South Park and Family Guy are geared more towards to white people, which explains why it is so popular. I think I may become a cartoonist, and create a show that mocks white people, see how you guys like it. haha"

Someone doesn't understand satire...

At least shark week is slowly correcting that issue.

Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH) had the dolphins killed because their bellies are white.

A screwdriver in the head? Was the dolphin asking for five dollars?
