INTERNATIONAL: Endangered dolphin dies in Argentina after beach-goers pass it around for selfies

12729365_10209159503374847_6970758747422618355_nINDEPENDENT (UK) – An endangered dolphin was killed after beach-goers reportedly pulled it from the water in order to take photos with it.

The Franciscan dolphin died last week at the Santa Teresita resort in Buenos Aires, Argentina, after a scrum of people were photographed grabbing two or the marine animals out of the surf and passing them around.

Hernan Coria posted images on Facebook showing two dolphins being held aloft like trophies while grinning tourists were seemingly unaware or unbothered about the animals’ discomfort.

Another photo showed at least one of the animals had been left on the sand to die.

After the images from Santa Teresita emerged, the Argentine Wildlife Foundation issued a warning to the public about the dolphins’ vulnerability in the hope that it will prevent similar incidents.

  2. Ignorance is a universal phenomena. So selfish of them to let "Flipper" die whilst they took their selfish "selfie" photos.
    If that had happened on a Caribbean beach then some persons would have threatened to boycott the particular island where the incident occurred.
