Mean tourists make dolphin ill!

A dolphin whose kidneys failed after eating junk food that tourists had thrown in its tank is now in stable condition after receiving several weeks of treatment at Changsha zoo, in this Hunan provincial capital.

The 5-year-old dolphin had to stop performing tricks at the zoo after falling ill a month and a half ago.

Kidney experts at major hospitals in the metropolis were invited to the zoo to help cure the dolphin in late February.

Experts from international wildlife associations will also be invited to Changsha for group medical consultations in the near future.
