North Korea is preparing everyone for war – even their dolphins.
The hermit kingdom seems to be breeding dolphins and training them for military operations, according to intel data derived from satellite images obtained by the non-profit United States Naval Institute.
Detailed satellite images show floating pens in a shipyard with warships based nearby, where the training of the dolphins is suspected to take place. Details of how the dolphins are being trained has not been fully established.
North Korean waters are not exactly ideal for dolphins. Dolphins tend to stay in waters between 50-90 F. While dolphins do possess several thermoregulatory features which enable them to adapt to colder waters, 50 degrees is at the lower end of the spectrum. North Korean waters can turn frigid during the winter months and this could prove to be problematic for dolphins.
North Korea is always full of secret surprises. That is why BTJ is always using creative ways to share the Good News in North Korea, which begs the question… if dolphins can be trained for war, can they also be trained to smuggle Bibles?
Currently BTJ missionaries are working in North Korea and sharing about Jesus Christ. Though they do not have any immediate plans to use dolphins to smuggle Bibles, they are still working to get Bibles into North Korea using back door channels.
