"2 dolphins were set free from Yevpatoria dolphinarium as a result of special operation with diving equipment.
During the night of the full moon on 20/07/2013 we covered 2 km under water and breached security perimeter: we cut the nets and entered dolphin containment pools.

In the next hour we cut large part of perimeter barrier. Dolphins encouraged our efforts with clicks and whistling. Their support filled us with joy and excitement.

This has been an unforgettable meeting and encouraging experience for us. Our job done, we left the area of operation.

By the way, the prison was equipped with night-vision cameras, but their red eyes were turned on the catwalks and audience seats.

Nobody expected our approach from below. As soon as dolphins got wind of freedom and open water, they escaped into the night sea.

While I applaud the efforts of the ALF to free these two kidnapped dolphins, I must point out that sometimes an extensive period of rehabilitation can be required before a captive dolphin is able to be returned to the sea. I hope these dolphins are able to make the transition on their own and quickly find some other dolphins to group with who might be able to help and protect them until they are re-adapted to the rigors of life in the wild.
