Humans – we claim ourselves to be superior to other living things on the planet…and one of the reason we give is that we are capable of making decisions by considering right and wrong, also we learn from studies performed by our fellow humans….I bumped into an article today in CNN which I thought was very disturbing and which defies our superiority among others…The article can be found here…its about not one..not two…but 400 dolphins were found dead on the coast of Tanzania….The most disturbing part of this news apart from the poor dolphins being dead is the cause of their death…Seems like the sonar that US Navy uses have been warned of such dangers and here is an excerpt from a previous statement that they had made –

"To avoid more significant harm, Navy officials promise to use shipboard observers and fish-finding sonar to make sure no marine mammals or sea turtles are within a kilometer of a sonar broadcast. Should a whale come too close, the sonar would be shut off, they say." – Click here for complete article.

So after making this statement few years ago, they kill 400 dolphins! As you can see the warning was not made a few months ago….it was made like 4 or 5 years ago…but then why didnt the Navy respect the facts and do something about it ! Also, this was not the first incident…they had already killed a bunch of sealife successfully earlier…..what is with the humans that make us so indifferent…we cant stop killing eachother and we dont let things that doesnt interfere with our lives alone either….so does this all add up to us being smarter than living beings with only five senses..? naah I dont think so….Addtional article about this can be found here
