Baby dolphin dies after tourists yank it out of ocean for Selfies

WARNING: DISTRESSING IMAGES The dolphin was passed around like an object (Picture: Facebook/Hernan Coria) An endangered baby dolphin died because tourists pulled it out of the ocean for selfies. The young Franciscan dolphin was killed at the beach resort of Santa Teresita in Buenos Aires last week, after a throng of visitors roughly grabbed the animal and passed it around. After throwing the animal around like a trophy, the tourists then left it to die in the sand, according to Argentina’s Wildlife Foundation.   MORE: Rhino poacher killed by elephant then eaten by lions MORE: WORLD Daughter begs for release of mum jailed for calling ex-husbands new wife a horse The dolphin was left to die in the sand (Picture: Facebook/Hernan Coria) Baby dolphin dies after being passed around for selfies Play Video Loaded: 0%Progress: 0% PlayMute Current Time 0:00 / Duration Time 0:52 Fullscreen In pictures captured by witness Hernan Coria, some people can even be seen taking photos of the mammal’s lifeless body. According to the Fundacion Vida Silvestre, the Franciscan species is vulnerable to extinction. Tourists man-handled the dolphin in the blazing hot sun (Picture: Facebook/Hernan Coria) ‘The Franciscan, like other dolphins, cannot remain above water for long,’ they wrote on their website. ‘It has a very thick and greasy skin that provides warmth, so the weather quickly causes dehydration and death.’ A spokesperson for Peta added: ‘In their efforts to get a novelty “selfie”, these holidaymakers showed a naïve – and ultimately fatal – disregard for life by hauling this baby dolphin out of the sea, where he or she belonged. ‘One can only imagine the trauma suffered not only by this baby, who was passed around like a toy by marauding tourists, but also his or her grieving mother.’ ADVERTISEMENT MORE: Mum’s double life as prostitute exposed when she was found dead MORE: Smoking weed does NOT make you depressed or anxious, major study suggests The Franciscan dolphin, so-called because its brown skin looks like a Franciscan monk’s habit, is found exclusively in the waters of southeastern South America.
