The Amazing Tale Behind Winter's Bionic Tail By Kavi Dolasia on 10/03/2011
Have you heard of the movie Dolphin Tale? Well that movie was based on a true story about a real live dolphin called Winter. In the movie they added a few aspects to make it more interesting. However there is a true and real story behind it. One day a man went to work and threw his crab catcher into his favorite sport and he heard a squealing. He went to go see what it was because it kept getting louder and louder. He saw that it was a baby dolphin stuck in the crab catcher and he immediately got his knife and cut it up. However, when the dolphin was let go the blood circulation to her tail got cut off so he called the Hubb-sea World Research Institution. They treated the dolphin and had to amputate its tail, otherwise it would die. They were worried because she still might have died. The amputated it and she started swimming again. However they were worried because she couldn't swim up and down so she started swimming side to side. They were worried that she would mess up her spine that way. One day they got a call from the vet and said they could make a fake tail extension for her. When they made it it was a complete success and now Winter serves as an inspiration to the rest of the world.
