Dolphin Pox Running Rampant

At the beginning of this week, an anonymous follower of our cause was able to get into Seaworld Orlando and photograph and ID several dolphins which are infected with pox. The whistleblower is quoted saying

I just got back from the park, got you a few pictures of some of the dolphins with pox. A lot of them at Cove have it, some really bad. Out of all of the ones I laid eyes on for sure, there were only a handful that I didn’t see any marks on. Can they contract that disease from each other? I saw a small spot on the juvenile female Haley. She is constantly pursued by an older male, Lagos, who is one that has the pox pretty bad. So I was just wondering how it spreads, if it’s contagious, etc.

I did not see any in Nursery that had it. But two, possibly three in the stadium (Baretta, Clyde, Marble) have it. I was not able to get great pictures of them but I got one that at least shows it on Baretta.

Vegas Rock Dog Radio

Last weekend we were invited to appear on Vegas Rock Dog Radio. It was quite the experience! We got to broadcast live to the entire world via a real radio studio. The both of us were extremely nervous going into it- but we left the station feeling accomplished and proud. We gave the 10 Mojave Dolphins a voice. People who had no idea that dolphins were even in the desert were now made aware of their plight. We are very thankful for the opportunity we were given and feel blessed to have made new connections with animal friends in the Las Vegas area.
