Quote:A wild dolphin has reportedly been attacking swimmers and boaters in a US town.
The dolphin in a canal in Slidell, Louisiana, is thought to have bitten several people over recent months.
It has been living in the canal since 2005, when the town suffered extensive damage from Hurricane Katrina.
A teenage boy became the creature's latest victim when he was bitten as he washed his hands in the water while standing in his boat.
Greg Walters, who lives by the canal in Lakeshore Estates, said he knew two people who had been attacked.
"The dolphin was raised back here and then all of a sudden I think the mother disappeared and the dolphin just stayed here...
What a sad life that Dolphin has lived, would someone in Slidell, please get the Dolphin into the wild or some sort of santuary rather than leaving it in a canal. I think its trying to tell you, "Get me the fuck out of the canal!"
