No, dolphins are not ‘thugs’ or ‘dumber than chickens.’
September 12, 2013Laura Bridgeman
There has been a recent spate of articles claiming that dolphins are “thugs” and “dumber than chickens.” Not only do these articles read as though they were written by high school troublemakers, but they also make false claims and disseminate misleading information that is at odds with current scientific understandings of dolphin and animal cognition.
One of those claims, made in the Daily Mail, is that since some dolphins kill smaller porpoises without any interest in eating them, they are less morally and cognitively sophisticated.
“Readers should not confuse aggressiveness with intelligence,” says Dr. Lori Marino, a neuroscientist at Emory University. “Humans are very intelligent and also very aggressive. Dolphins are very intelligent and they can also be aggressive. The two have absolutely nothing to do with each other.” We humans should hope not, as we are the only species that commits mass genocide and so frequently murders our own kind.
The Tokyo Times Environmentalists protested in Tokyo against annual dolphin hunt The Tokyo Times “The Cove”, an Academy Award-winning documentary, made the topic of dolphins' slaughter famous worldwide.
But the pantheon of cetaceans includes far more than just our charismatic, coastal kin. Preferring deeper water and diving for more than an hour at a time, some species of whales and dolphins are rarely seen, and seldom studied. These animals slip stealthily between the waves at the surface and retreat into a deep blue world that we still know very little about.
