Girl Bitten By Dolphin At SeaWorld

ORLANDO (CBS) – A girl was bitten by a dolphin during a recent trip to SeaWorld Orlando and the entire incident was caught on tape.

8-year-old Jillian Thomas was feeding the dolphins, when one of them jumped up and bit her hand. Her dad was taking this video, and posted it to YouTube. He wanted to warn other parents who’s kids might feed the dolphins.

The bite left behind three dime-sized puncture wounds on her hand. Her hand it pretty much healed now, but she thought it was going to be a lot worse. The family doesn’t plan to take legal action.

SeaWorld released a statement, saying they are taking the incident very seriously.
