In this Nov. 29, 2012 photo, an adult and baby Atlantic bottlenose dolphin swim in one of the pens at the SPAWAR facility on Point Loma, Calif. Some dolphins used by the Navy to track down mines will soon lose their jobs to robots _ but they'll be reassigned, not retired. Starting in 2017, 24 of the Navy's 80 military-trained dolphins will be replaced by a 12-foot unmanned torpedo-shaped vehicle, according to UT San Diego (AP Photo/U-T San Diego, John Gibbins) SAN DIEGO COUNTY OUT; NO SALES; COMMERCIAL INTERNET OUT; FOREIGN OUT
