CHICAGO (Reuters) - A woman is suing a Chicago-area zoo for a 2008 fall near a dolphin exhibit, accusing zookeepers of encouraging the mammals to splash water and then failing to protect spectators from wet surfaces, local media reported on Thursday. In her suit filed earlier this week, Allecyn Edwards said she was injured while walking near an exhibit at Brookfield Zoo, where a group of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins were performing, media said.
The dolphins are hotly denying that they were ever coerced to splash. They do it, they say, because it's cultural.

We usually don't expect Saab owners to do things like that. They usually attack with tofu and vegetarian delicacies.
