A vicious dolphin torments French fishermen:
For several weeks, an enraged dolphin has been terrorising the French Atlantic coast, attacking boats and knocking fishermen into the sea, French media reported on Wednesday.
“He’s like a mad dog,” complained Henri Le Lay, president of the association of fishermen and yachtsmen of the port of Brezellec, in Brittany.
The dolphin, who has been named Jean Floch, has destroyed rowboats, overturned open boats, flooded engines and twisted mooring lines.
Worse, two fishermen were knocked into the sea after the dolphin overturned their boat.
“I don’t want to see any widows or orphans,” Le Lay warned. “This could end badly.”
Le Lay’s solution:
“We put mad animals to sleep”, he was reported as saying. “I like dolphins, but this one should be removed or locked up very quickly”.

UPDATE. Consider, please, the root causes:
Experts say that the dolphin, which has been named Jean Floch, must have been excluded from its group recently to have turned so violent.
UPDATE II. Reader Geoff:
This is a load of crap. I routinely find myself swimming among a school of bottle-nosed dolphins around here. All they do is grin at you. It’s like a wet Mormon convention.
Mind you I’m not French.
