Shocker, a wild animal did something unexpected. Maybe the father could have shown some responsibility for his daughter and not allowed her to wave that thing around in the dolphins face.

And at no signs to warn them.

After they post huge signs saying not to do that. What do these people think? That the dolphin is a robot?

How? And had the kid died, people wouldn't be laughing about it.. But the fact of the matter is that the kid was barely harmed and the parents made an obscene scene over it.

Im end this thread i didnt read anyones posts but here its goes....

They were instructed not to pick up the damn tray, kid picked up the tray and surprise surprise gets bit.
Its like saying jump once and you jump twice.
Parents fault for not beating their kid, kids fault for not listening.

Local news in LA included a sound bite from dad saying he had no plans to sue, just wanted everyone to know what can happen. We'll see if that sentiment holds up after a few lawyers dangle a big payday in front of them.

He mentioned the lack of signs. Really, like people read signs and are vigilant about everything they say.

The Mayan end of the world is going to be when the entire planet is one big warning sign with so much fine print that no one can do anything any more.

People forget that dolphin are among the top ocean predators. They are perceived as fun and friendly because of their "smile", intelligence, generally playful disposition, and the fact that they generally only eat fish, which humans don't empathize with as a prey item. But, with the exception that they don't take large prey, they're analogous to wolves. They're big, strong, quick, smart and well-toothed and must be treated with respect for their abilities.

It wouldn't surprise me if Sea World adds a shelf or nook along the top of that wall and instructs people to keep the tray under the shelf to help protect them from their own carelessness.

Coming from a parent. Kid and Parent's fault. 100%. Pay attention to your kid, make sure they are doing as instructed. If they aren't old enough to handle the simple rules, don't let them participate or supervise a little better.

The kid is okay, live and learn. Children make mistakes. That's how they learn from them.

This could have all been prevented with some "No Bite Zone" signage.

I dont blame the dumb kid or the instinctive animal. Accidents happen, animals will be animals and kids will do dumb kid things. I blame the parents for trying to shut this attraction down and milking sea world. They should have monitored the kid closer, the attraction clearly says dont pick up the trays.
