Thread: Dolphin Bites 8 Year Old Girl at SeaWorld Orlando

  1. #11
    The price of those fish trays has gone up considerably and I felt that it was just a money making ploy, so don't think they'll be getting rid of it.

    Definitely, you have to line up and pay for food now to be able to get close to the dolphins.

    We've never paid out extra to do things like this, i dont believe in it, we've had to pay enough to go there without paying extra ontop!
    But imo this was just "one of those things", they knew what the child should and shouldnt have been doing and the dolphin just saw the tray and thought about the fish! The little girl was just being a little girl and the dolphin being a dolphin

    I got attacked by one of the birds by the sea lions because I was hesitant once. Easily done

    We only ever pay to feed the stingrays because it's such a weird experience.

    I can see the wisdom behind reminding people that these are animals and not a toy, but I don't think there is much to this story beyond that. The girl made a mistake and the dolphin reacted.

    If they don't want you to move the paper plate, then sink a bucket into the ledge and put each person's fish in that, or put a "slide" of sorts in where you slide the fish down and the dolphin gets it at the bottom.

    Exactly, Shelly! Don't make a child responsible for understanding and remembering animal behavior. The child is excited, and should not be held any more responsible than the dolphin!

    I believe this situation can be termed an attractive nuisance, meaning that the child was injured as a result of the vendor's failure to protect the customer from a problem CREATED BY the "display."

    Does this apply to my bird attack too?

    I would rather think it did. If you are not used to birds swooping down and aggressively trying to take what you have, then yes. The place that sets up the process that causes that, should be responsible for ADEQUATELY warning you.

    If you choose to ignore the warnings, then no.

    Can the dolphin sue for pain and anguish?
