    Dolphin and Orcas abuse for Sochi 2014 Olympics


    "Cancel Dolphin Performance at Sochi 2014 Olympics":


    A dolphin from Sochi's Sea Star dolphinarium is scheduled to take part in the Sochi Olympics torch relay three days before the opening ceremony in a small pool in the Black Sea resort on February 4.


    The torch will be transported by train to Sochi, and take a ride on a ferris wheel before swimming with the dolphin. An animal trainer will hold onto a dolphin's fin with one hand and the torch with the other.


    Russia’s Olympic torch had exploded and was engulfed by flames when it passed through a small city near Moscow, on October 18,- as reported by RIA Novosti here; Russia's Olympic torches are produced by a factory that also manufactures parts for Russian ballistic missiles, submarines and the space rockets.


    Urge the President of the International Olympic Comittees to protect the dolphin to keep her out of the Olympics. Dolphins in their natural ocean habitat, never in contact with fire and, accordingly, have a natural shyness and fear of fire. There is also the risk of another accident in which the dolphin could suffer extremely painful burns, or be killed during training exercises or at the Olympics. Tell the International Olympic Comittee to cancel the dolphin performance at Sochi 2014 Olympics.
