Why did the chicken cross the road?

It certainly was not to save the life of a human. I am stunned and frustrated that some among your kind liken the slaughter of my fellow whales and dolphins to that of cows and chickens. There are countless, well-documented examples of whales or dolphins saving human lives, or expressing gratitude through gentle physical contact with a human when the situation was reversed. And yet, there are far too many ignorant people who still make this inane comparison. I wish I could ask them when was the last time they read about a cow saving somebody from a grizzly bear. Or a chicken rescuing a drowning swimmer? Or even better, I wish I could get them into the deep and dark waters off the Farallones, with a 6 meter Great White Shark closing in on them, and see if they would still hold to this view, when I and a few of my dolphin friends chased the shark away. I think not. Oh well, the fact that some of you are idiots does not lessen my love for mankind. See you on the far side of the surf.


  1. Hey RAR, I definitely dig the ideal of your blog and quest. Keep up the strong work!

  2. Hi RAR, I appreciate your comment on my DolphinWorld blog. I am always looking for new and exciting facts about dolphins, especially about dolphin swimming or how they use their echo location. I hope you have a lot of success with your book. Come back to my blog again.
    God Bless,
