Stunned by this week's whale vs. human drowning at a Florida tourist attraction, U.S. zoologists are convening a hastily thrown together symposium in order to focus on the problem.
Dr. Lloyd Flembey, acting director of Florida's "Dolphin World Aquarium" said today in an interview that this sort of tragedy is unknown with other members of the friendly mammal family.
"We all know and love the dolphins,porpoises and belugas.Even the giant blue and sperm whales, although they are too big to get into the aquarium's performance tank. If we can all just agree to a name-change, maybe something like 'Gentle Ben Whales', something like that. I'm sure that would help."
