Man Cited For Feeding Dolphin
Man Cited For Feeding Dolphin


BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. -- A captain of a Merritt Island pontoon boat tour got a $321 ticket for allegedly feeding a dolphin in the Banana River.

Officers cited Donald Quinn, 51, of Brevard County, captain of the vessel, Fish Tales, at about 1 p.m., at the Barge Canal locks, Local 6 News partner Florida Today reported.

An undercover officer with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission filmed Quinn and a passenger on the 24-foot-long boat feeding menhaden baitfish to the dolphin, said Lenny Salberg, an officer with the commission.

Quinn's ticket was for interfering with a dolphins normal activity, a second-degree misdemeanor.

The passenger who also fed the dolphin was not cited.

1. This is good
There is a lot of people who do horrible things to dolphins. They do not need to trust people and come up to boats for food.
