Two Franciscana dolphins were ripped from the waves near an Argentinan resort last week, then manhandled to shore, where they were passed around a clutching mob seeking cute selfie moments. In the process, at least one of the intelligent, playful cetaceans died from the experience. Franciscana, or La Plata, dolphins are unable to spend as long out of the water as their larger brethren. âAt least one of these dolphins suffered a horrific, traumatic and utterly unnecessary death, for the sake of a few photographs,â a spokesperson from the World Animal Protection group told ABC in Australia, condemning the despicable incident. âThis terribly unfortunate event is an example of the casual cruelty people can inflict when they use animals for entertainment purposes.â

I hate people.
The planet would be better off if we were never born.
30,000 means extinction??? I don’t think so. They live 20 years.
heh, that was my impression too, it got me to click on the posting

The world is full of them
That is how Obama became president
Makes me want some Weemsco tuna.
What should we expect from a species that kills their own while still in the womb?
Talk about bad wording, but it piqued my interest too.
So do dolphins
Liberals don’t really care about the animals. All they care about is getting a picture with them, so as to claim that they are for the endangered species.
Sometimes I really hate the human race.
Stupid selfish imbeciles. Imagine the distress and pain that poor baby dolphin must have experienced at the hands of these pieces of garbage. And for what? A picture they will forget in 10 minutes.
