Come Out With Your Flippers Up

This qualifies as the weirdest post-hurricane story ever:

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.

No, they’re not missing. Their compound was breached and they aren’t in there now, but the dolphins are not missing.

However, if they’re equipped with those toxic dart guns, they should be considered flippered and dangerous.
