Earlier this week, on the WITL morning show, we told you that Russia had seized Ukraine's "combat dolphins". These were dolphins trained to work with the Ukrainian Navy.

The U.S. Navy has itself trained dolphins, sea lions and small whales to find underwater mines, retrieve equipment from the sea floor and identify intruders swimming into restricted areas.

Now comes word from a former Ukrainian defense minister, that if these dolphins were indeed captured, they most likely will NOT cooperate with their new Russian overlords.

Finally, somebody who will stand up to Vlad Putin. I hope he takes off his shirt and tries to go swimming with them.

Banana Don and Stephanie McCoy amuse and thrill you every morning from 5:30 – 10AM on the radio at 100.7 WITL.
