This may be NY Post but the US Navy has published an article that is more sophisticated but is treating the same subject. Both articles below. They caught this on satellite photos.

North Korea may be militarizing dolphins, report says

By Tamar Lapin November 12, 2020

North Korea has repurposed its porpoises — for war, a report said Wednesday.

The hermit kingdom appears to be training dolphins as part of its naval force, according to satellite images obtained by the non-profit United States Naval Institute.

The images show animal pens floating in murky waters, between a shipyard and a coal loading dock, with warships based nearby, the USNI said.

The article says we’ve militarized some ourselves. I know the story sounds out-there.

Dolphins, false killer whales and beluga whales in a project that is decades old.

Dang it! You stole my reply!

Only in 2020 could they militarize Flipper.

We did it back in the day. When I was stationed in Hawaii, it was a well-known “secret” that an off limits part of the base was for dolphin training.

They don’t need to be putting those beautiful creatures in harm’s way. They are intelligent too and they need to be left alone. Off my soap box now.

At least the cavalry gave up their horses and now use tanks.
