Opposition surfaces to Navy plan to use dolphins, sea lions for Bangor security

by Tim Flanagan on February 19, 2009

The U.S. Navy wants to use Atlantic bottlenose dolphins and California sea lions in Puget Sound to protect against terrorists along Naval Base Kitsap at Bangor on Hood Canal. The Navy-trained dolphins would find threatening divers, clinic then make way for deep-diving California sea lions to clamp a cuff around the intruder’s ankle.

Michelle Ma has the story in the Seattle Times. With Navy-supplied video!
