Target: Comisiario General Hugo Matzkin, Superintendent General of Police
Goal: Prosecute those responsible for allegedly exposing a dolphin to the sun so that they could take selfies.
A dolphin was allegedly cooked to death in the hot sun after a tourist removed it from the water for the purpose of taking selfies. Demand that the people responsible for the suffering and death of this vulnerable animal are prosecuted if found guilty.
Dozens of tourists allegedly passed a baby dolphin around while it overheated in the hot sun. It began with one person snatching the baby from the water. Soon, a mob allegedly surrounded the dolphin in an attempt to take selfies. Dolphins cannot survive outside of the water for long; their thick, fatty skin quickly absorbs heat and raises their body temperature. In a matter of minutes, the dolphin allegedly died in the rough hands of the tourists.
Shortly after, the dolphin’s body was discarded on the beach. Sign below to demand that the people allegedly responsible are punished.
Dear General Matzkin,
A tourist allegedly plucked a dolphin from the water in an attempt to take selfies. Soon, dozens of curious tourists surrounded the dolphin. It allegedly squirmed in pain as the sun slowly cooked it to death. No animal should have to burn to death to satisfy human curiosity. We demand that justice is served for this vulnerable animal.
With only 30,000 La Plata dolphins left in the world, we must take a stand. Dolphins face the threat of fishing nets, pollution, and habitat loss every day. The ignorance of the public should not become a threat to this vulnerable species.
The alleged actions taken by this group of tourists cannot be tolerated. We demand that those involved in this ignorant assault are prosecuted if found guilty.
[Your Name Here]
