I'll buy it off you for $3,000 - we would love on for our pool... it's huge and the kids would love swimming with it.

Ry

You do realise Nicky that not only is it wrong to keep Dolphins as a pet but If you could sell them... I think it would be worth a little more than $3,000.

I could make that much in a week from charging the local kids to swim with it.

Dudes this is a fake

Dolphin-for-sale hoax angers SPCA, DoC

01.10.05
By Angela Gregory

The hoax sale of a dolphin on the Trade Me website has angered the SPCA, which says it has never been inundated with so many complaints.

The "seller" from West Auckland claimed the dolphin was being kept in a domestic swimming pool after being accidentally caught in a net during a weekend fishing trip.

SPCA national chief executive Robyn McDonald said the hoax was an irresponsible attempt at self-promotion at the expense of New Zealand's international reputation as a nation that cares for animals.

She had received hundreds of concerned emails and telephone calls.

"While the majority of these simply expressed their concern, there were also comments along the lines of Kiwis will sell anything. Even though the posting has now been revealed as a hoax, our national reputation will still have sustained some damage.

"We understand that the hoaxer is now offering to recompense the SPCA for the trouble he has caused. While his donation will be welcome, he should have considered the damage he was likely to inflict before indulging in this totally irresponsible attempt at self-promotion."

Peter Younger, a senior Department of Conservation investigator, said he was also annoyed at having to waste his time investigating the hoax.

Mr Younger had talked to the offender, an Auckland advertising manager, who had expressed some regret but was surprised at people's gullibility.

"He could not believe the fuss."

He had previously investigated similar hoaxes about the proposed sale of a brown kiwi and penguins.

Mike O'Donnell, of Trade Me, said the hoax was removed from the site within 40 minutes.

He said Trade Me employed 20 people to check postings on the site.

aww man i was trying to find out if normal people could really own dolphins, this sucks, u jerks, does anyone no for sure if normal peeps can own a dolphin? plez answer

Ry

I don't think so dude! It takes a little more care than your average GoldFish.

You will need a shit load of cash and lots of care. But then again, getting one to do tricks and stuff would be cool.

Good luck finding one!

i love dolphins i always wanted to swim with one. they are my favorite.
but i heard it is a lot of money.

Ry

Not really, I swam with Dolphins at Hamilton Island when they had them in the main pool.

I was around 8 at the time so I can't remember it very well, they are very slippery.

Sara

Can't believe some people actually made stupid offers thinking "it would be great to own a dolphin... " or asking to give it to an aquarium, which is no better than keeping it in a backyard pool... google aquatic park dolphin cruelty if you still believe sea world and all those wonderfull places are great for the dolphins......

You can actually see another dolphin in that picture... not very credible

Amy

Dolphins are EXTREMELY intelligent, they actually have self-awareness... which for long we thought was what differenciated men from animals.
Captive dolphins die at very early ages because they are NO WAY suitable for captivity. Aquatic parks just buy 10 "skippy", then 4 of them die... so these get replaced... and another will 2 go insane and ram their heads on the concrete pool sides until they die from internal bleeding.. they are replaced... and 2 years later another group will die.. and get replaced! Of course all Marine Land and cie ever tell us is "he died of old age"...
The reason they actually do the boring tricks (yes they get bored after having done them 8000 times)
is that it is the ONLY stimulation that they ever get in that tiny pool.

Its like locking up a Hell Angel's guy in a 4 by 4 cell with nothing in it but a magazine about flowers or home decoration... can guarantie ya after a few days or weeks in there he will start reading it! ^^
