Trying to stop more dolphin deaths

Published 06/10/09

In the days before a dolphin named Sgt. Pepper died last week at The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, two animal rights organizations — Born Free USA and The World Society for the Protection of Animals — had filed a complaint against the Mirage’s request to import two more dolphins for its habitat. Part of the complaint, ironically, said more dolphins shouldn't be brought in because other dolphins had died in the past at the habitat, which the two groups claim is being used as a money-making entertainment enterprise, rather than for educational or conservation purposes.
