Submission + - U.S. Navy, Dolphins, and Fricken LASER Beams

WED Fan writes: "The U.S. Navy is getting ready to deploy Anti-Terrorism Dolphins and Seals.

Dozens of dolphins and sea lions trained to detect and apprehend waterborne attackers could be sent to patrol a military base in Washington state, the Navy said Monday. In a notice published in this week's Federal Register, the Navy said it needs to bolster security at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor, on the Puget Sound close to Seattle.

Those of us living in the area know this could be a problem for certain types of criminals, proving a problem for anyone who shoots sea mammals in the area."
