'Delinquent dolphin' torments New Zealand tourists

Moko, the killer dolphin?

Tourists have dubbed Moko the "delinquent dolphin" after he recently began tormenting tourists at the New Zealand resort town of Gisborne.

Lifeguards have had to rescue at least six people after Moko upended water skiers, head-butted surfers, stole surf boards and ogled women of the human variety. The president of a local surf club reportedly told one newspaper, "He relates more to humans than to other dolphins. There is a danger he could literally become a lady killer."

Perhaps Moko is just auditioning for a possible remake of "Jaws."
