Anybody that has dove with Dolphins and whales knows there is intelligence there, you can see it in their eyes. Sounds silly but when you catch their eye you can tell that somebody is looking at you. Somebody as a fellow intellectual being. Dogs, cats, horses can be faithful loving creatures, but the spark of intelligence is missing.
I've seen this video before, but I've never heard of a Dolphin biting a hook, never. I assume maybe he ate a fish that had been hooked and had broken the line?

Unless I'm mistaken many people have been saved from drowning by Dolphins, I don't think that is an urban legend

What do you mean dogs don't have intelligence in their eyes, I know for sure some of the canines I have had are a lot smarter than my representatives in Congress, agree with you on the cat thing though. :popcorn:

Dogs have more intelligence than reps in Congress? That insults our beloved dogs. Cockroaches have more intelligence than reps in Congress.

I agree completely. I was involved with a rescue of False Killer Whales off Crowdy Head , NSW. The whales beached and were transported to the boat harbour. As part of a Uni dive club we drove down to help. The whales (about 30 if them) would corkscrew through the water and were not able to breath properly. They were swimming in a tight circle in the harbour. We swam with them all through the night, grabbing their pectoral fins and bringing them to the surface to breath. These were large animals that could have broken our limbs with a careless swipe of their tails, but they were oh so gentle.

Towards the end of the night I hadn't seen one of the smaller ones for a while, and then two healthy whales, patrolling the edges of the group, swam under the other animals and surfaced with the young one between them, assisting it to breathe. It was amazing and moving. We swam them out of the harbour in the morning, but some of them beached again. On the second attempt, we were more successful. I think it is still recorded as one of the most successful rescues.

I must admit i was a bit disconcerted at the BC video recently that shows killer whales herding some dolphins and then devouring them!

That was pretty cool. I use to live in Kona and have SCUBA'd with the mantas. As far as dogs not intelligent...I think Nellie might object.
