Walrus Keeper

Not only is this Dispatch an example of inferior writing--straining to be humorous, mixing styles atrociously--but I think there are some serious questions about plausibility (it is published under "Fact" heading). Lets just focus on the walrus' diet. "Meat"? Walruses eat clams primarily. Then there is the part about the walrus keeper stealing the walrus' meat and replacing the weight with steel bolts. This begs believeability. Who's weighing the meat, who would check it? Where is the guy getting all these nuts and bolts in Communist-era Russia? How would they "poison" the walrus? Finally, a simple Google search reveals that walruses in fact consume a fair amount of stones, pebbles and clam shells while they are feeding, so some nuts and bolts shouldn't be a problem. Why did Geist publish this?
