Dolphin Splashes Lead to Lawsuit

A woman who said she was injured from a fall near a dolphin exhibit is seeking more than $50,000 in damages from the Chicago-area Brookfield Zoo.

Allecyn Edwards charges that officials:

… recklessly and willfully trained and encouraged the dolphins to throw water at the spectators in the stands, making the floor wet and slippery but failed to post warning signs or lay down protective mats or strips.

Edwards is seeking the damages for lost wages, medical expenses and emotional trauma from the Chicago Zoological Society and the Forest Preserve District of Cook County, which operate the zoo in Chicago’s southwest suburbs.
