Dolphins are usually docile timid creatures which humans love but, once in a while a rogue one emerges to make life miserable as has been happening in Louisiana as reported in skynews dated 28th of May 2012.

This particular dolphin had been living in a canal in Slidell, Louisiana since 2005 and had made it its residence when the town was badly damaged by Hurricane Katrina.

Its mother used to be with it but when the mother drifted away, and this dolphin was left abandoned it began to prey on humans.

It has become a rogue and has bitten a number of kids of the locality and people are terrified.

Earlier, locals used to feed it and experts are of the opinion that this dolphin has begun to associate humans with food – hence it tries to lay hands on humans.

Wildlife officials do not have any plans at present to relocate the rogue dolphin.
