Semo, the MN Zoo’s 44 year-old dolphin, has been *tapping that fin* with mother-daughter dolphins April and Allie.

Allie, the daughter, is pregnant, and April, the mom, is sick with an undetermined disease. She’s sick enough the newspaper is pointing out she’s lived 16 years above average.

Dolphin shows at the zoo have been postponed indefinitely, both because April is sick and because Semo can’t stop rockin’ the cashbah. According to the PiPress:

“The presence of a female and a male is all it takes with dolphins,” said Kevin Willis, director of biological programs at the Apple Valley zoo. “Dolphins are a species that are pretty easy to breed. They’re big, and they do it often. They’re not shy or secretive.” …Parents found themselves even having to explain the dolphin trio’s behaviors to their kids, Willis said. The dolphins were so sexually distracted that trainers had to cancel their shows.

Now that’s good journalism, right there.

A mother-daughter love triangle (with voyeurs of all ages), resulting in quarantining and a baby expected in the spring. I’m telling you, our local zoo needs it’s own reality show.
