A sad update on yesterdays post. Spanish dolphin trainer,Jose Luis Barbero, 59 years old, was found inside his vehicle at the parking lot of the Palma De Mallorca airport. The authorities are treating it as a suicide. Recently Barbero was linked to videos and social media that accused him of abusing dolphins.
