Sea World dolphin bites boy!

A six-year-old Georgia boy is recovering from a dolphin bite he received at SeaWorld Orlando's Dolphin Cove.

It happened Sunday night.

The boy's mother says she beat on the dolphin's snout, after it grabbed her son's left arm.

The dolphin's teeth did not break the child's skin. He has a bruised arm and is expected to be fine.
SeaWorld says the dolphin will be watched and possibly re-trained.

The family was given a private dolphin viewing and offered tickets for a return visit. However, the boy's mother says he does not really want to see any more dolphins right now.
