You're reading: Killer dolphin escape story ‘absolutely fabricated,’ officials say
Popular
on social media

But those
responsible for taking care of the dolphins say the story is totally false.

Killer dolphins,
also known as military dolphins, are animals trained for use in military
operations. They are trained to carry and place underwater mines, rescue naval
swimmers or find lost underwater military units.

“This is
absolutely fabricated news. There is no way anything like this could happen and
all the animals we have are in their places,” says Anatoliy Gorbachev, the
director of the national Research Center of Ukrainian Armed Forces State
Aquarium in Sevastopol.
