Horrified Crowd Can Only Watch As Brutal Attack Unfolds

During a “Flipper” display at the Miami Seaquarium on Saturday, a dolphin trainer was attacked. After the two collided in the water, Sundance, a 23-year-old dolphin, broke from his routine and attacked his trainer. The incident was captured on camera by photographer Shannon Carpenter, who shows when Sundance turned on the trainer.

The video was uploaded to TikTok and has since received over 500 shares.

The trainer can be seen attempting to get out of the pool as the dolphin takes her below and her head vanishes for a brief moment. The trainer was taken to the hospital by ambulance when she was able to get out of the water.

According to the Whales and Dolphins Coalition, dolphins can swim up to 18 miles per hour and use their snouts to attack sharks in the wild.

In a study published in 2021, the US Department of Agriculture accused the Seaquarium of a variety of animal rights abuses. At the facility in the past, animals were fed rotten fish and an orca whale was kept in a damaged tank.

“This was an uncomfortable interaction for both of them and the dolphin reacted by breaking away from the routine and striking the trainer,” Seaquarium said a statement about the incident. “As a precaution, Miami-Dade County safety authorities were contacted. Our family extends to include the animals in our care, our team members and our guests. While there is no apparent serious injury, a careful watch and follow-up evaluations will ensure the best care for all.”
