New claims over use of dolphins for military purposes

Reports from the Mediterranean claim that the Israeli military has been deploying dolphins in recent naval operations.

Across the globe, the naval forces of several countries are known to use dolphins and other marine mammals for security purposes and other activities such as mine detection and retrieval of objects.

WDC's Policy manager Rob Lott condemned the use of dolphins for such purposes, saying: "Unfortunately, some military operations have used dolphins in warfare and research for decades. WDC believes it is exploitative and immoral to involve another sentient being in the pursuit of settling humankind's differences."
