5 Animal Rights Campaigns That Managed to Screw Over Animals | Cracked.com: "Well, not quite. While dolphins aren't sucked into FADs, absolutely everything else is. For every 1,000 tons of tuna, more than 100,000 random animals are unintentionally hauled up and killed, including endangered species of sharks, manta rays, and sea turtles. That's roughly 100 times the number of dolphins that were being caught in drift nets. So, in actuality, "dolphin safe" is just a euphemism for "wholesale massacre in a can."
