Export of Dolphins a crying shame!

I'm surprised at a so-called Islamic country sanctioning this appalling cruelty to animals. The Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) would never condone the use of animals for sport or entertainment. The stress and horror these dolphins will undergo as a result of capture, transport and confinement is beyond belief.

Shame on the government of the Solomon Islands and shame on Dubai and UAE for taking these dolphins from their home. How would they like to be airlifted to a foreign country and taken from their families and homes. Despicable!
