Reports of military exercises with dolphins

December 5, 2014

Sputnik News report that the Russian Black Sea Fleet’s Special Forces have held its first training exercises with combat dolphins since the Crimean Peninsula was reunited with Russia, a military source in Crimea.

 

It reports that training exercises were held with combat dolphins in the Sevastopol Oceanarium in the search of military equipment at a depth of over 60 meters. An object that looked like a mine was spotted by a dolphin and tagged with a buoy.

 

It appears that some 13 dolphins may be involved in this programme. 

 

TASS, the Russian News Agency, deny military exercises in the Crimean Black see are taking place. 

 

We can only hope that dolphins are not being used in military programmes by any nation.
