Killer Dolphins Armed with Knives and Guns

When
you don’t have frickin’ laser beams to put on sharks, it doesn’t mean
that you can’t join in on the fun. Ukrainian Navy has the next best thing:
they’ve started training killer dolphins armed with knives or pistols
attached to their heads!

The Ukrainan navy has restarted special training for dolphins and other
animals for military duties including attacking enemy combat swimmers
and detecting mines, a military source in the Ukrainian naval port of
Sevastopol told RIA Novosti on Thursday.
"Ten dolphins are now being trained for special tasks in the Ukrainian
state oceanarium, and the Ukrainian military are regularly training
the animals for detecting things on the seabed," the source said.

The killer-dolphins will be trained to attack enemy combat swimmers
using special knives or pistols fixed to their heads, the source said.
"We are now planning training exercises for counter-combat swimmer
tasks in order to defend ships in port and on raids," he said.
