Could These Robotic Dolphins End Animal Captivity?

This dolphin is a real trailblazer because many are hoping that it will help end animal captivity. It's not a real dolphin. It's a robot, weighing more than 500 pounds with silicone skin. It was created by a company called Edge Innovations, which has developed animatronics for movies like “Free Willy” and Deep “Blue Sea.” Designers say this dolphin could be a great alternative for water parks to use instead of real animals. Inside Edition Digital’s Mara Montalbano has more.

    If humans care so much about capturing wild dolphins from the wild, then why don't we have a heart for horses who get captured from the wild and separated from their families as well. I have met many of people who don't care about wild horses being captured but only dolphin captures. That is above all hypocritical!!!!

    3 to 5 million dollars? Yeah this definitely aint gonna work. Why spend 3 mil on one Dolphin when you can get a real one so much cheaper. Nice idea, too expensive to actually be put to use by these corporations.

    The dolphins that have already been captured or captive bread still can’t be released into the wild, they don’t know how to hunt or what to do, they’ll just die... Hopefully this will be a good replacement for when a dolphin dies rather than just abuse another one
