Dolphin Bites People

Rogue dolphin attacks swimmers in Louisiana - "SLIDELL, La., May 29 (UPI) -- A rogue dolphin living in a canal in Slidell, La., has been attacking swimmers and boaters, and little can be done about it, authorities say.

The male dolphin has only recently become aggressive, after taking up residence in the canal behind the Lakeshore Estates subdivision after Hurricane Katrina, WVUE-TV, New Orleans, said Tuesday, reporting one person was bitten last week as he was standing in a boat and washing his hands in the water."
