Winter the Dolphin

by Mickayla, grade 4, from Canada

"My heart went out to her, and I was thinking I could put a tail on her" -Kevin Caroll
It was when Winter had her prostetic tail (The Billings Gazzete.com (The Billings Gazette))

When Winter was young she got caught in a fishing net. The only reason why Winter got caught was because of the fisherman that caught Winter in the fishing net.

Winter is a hero because she had to swim without a tail from 2005-2014. Winter is a really inspiring because she swam without a tail, she is the only Dolphin that swam without a tail.

Winter had to live far away from her family. Winter had to leave her family to go to Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Florida, USA.

For these reasons I believe Winter the Dolphin is a great hero.
