Cetacean Terminators

This sounds like dodgy sci-fi, but the Observer reports the, well, rumour that dolphins trained by the US Navy to fire 'toxic dart' guns at swimmers were accidentally released into the wild by Hurricane Katrina.
The alleged intention was to use the dolphins to shoot terrorists attacking military vessels, but it's possible they might now attack and immobilise any swimmer or surfer they encounter.

Before anyone panics, it's worth mentioning that these 'killer dolphins' mightn't even exist – the US Navy admits training dolphins for military purposes, but not that any are missing, nor the nature of the training. This might all just be a 'silly season' non-story.
