Armed dolphins allegedly escape in Ukraine

According to reports, three armed dolphins have escaped from a Ukrainian military training facility.

The bizarre headline has been circulating the web following claims that the escaped marine mammals have been trained to attack humans and are armed with knives and head-mounted machine guns. This isn't the first time a story like this has surfaced either, it has long been suspected that the Ukrainian military have been experimenting with training dolphins for deployment in armed combat. Other countries including the US have also experimented with similar concepts in the past.

At present it is unclear if the escape story is genuine or whether the whole thing is an exercise in political point scoring. The Ukrainian government has naturally denied the allegations, instead dismissing the claim as a "fabrication" and a "gross provocation."

"No, itís not a promo for the latest sci-fi movie. There are claims circulating that three dolphins have escaped from a Ukrainian military training facility armed with head-mounted guns and knives and trained to attack humans."

"I know what you're thinking..... "Did he fire six shots... or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth... in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Dolphin super-squirter... the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off.... you've got to ask yourself one question... Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

Ok...Were the dolphins armed during they're escape? And how did they escape in the first place? Were they in a pen or what? If they're armed, then we have a problem....And just waiting for them to run out of ammo is stupid. Dolphins with head-mounted machine guns? Whats next? Sharks with frickin laser beams attached to their frickin heads?
