It all comes back to Douglas Adams

Driving into work at 6:30 am this morning, I heard this story on NPR's "Morning Edition" about scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration trying to figure out what's been causing recent deaths of bottlenose dolphins of the coast of Florida.

During the course of the story, we learn that dolphins are being captured, given very thorough physicals including tubes down the throat and blubber removal, and then branded before being put back into the water.

Personally, after treatment like that, I am surprised that they like even the tiny tots and the pregnant women.
