SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The death of a dolphin at a local marine park inspired activists to publicly honor his life Saturday night.

The dolphin lovers said Bodie's death at seven years old is unacceptable, and they don't want dolphins in captivity at Dolphinaris Arizona any longer.

They question is why Dolphinaris wouldn't say anything about the death until almost a month later – the dolphin dying Sept. 23, according to Dolphinaris.

There are seven other dolphins still housed at Dolphinaris.
