Justice for Dolphin Allegedly Killed by Selfie-Seeking Tourists

dolphin-by-heyjude

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.

PETITION LETTER:

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.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. OMG………….WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH HUMANS TODAY THAT THINK THAT DOING HORRIBLE THINGS LIKE THIS IS OK??? IT IS NOT OK AND THEY MUST BE SEVERELY PUNISHED. FIND THEM AND PUNISH THEM!!!

    RIP POOR DOLPHIN AND MAY YOU FIND JUSTICE WHEN THOSE INVOLVED ARE CAUGHT AND SEVERELY PUNISHED.

  2. Where the hell were the people running this? They are as in the wrong as the people who pulled it from the water. What the hell is wrong with people nowadays? Honestly, there appears to be no thinking, no penalties for actions, nothing! Truly sickening. Both the tourists AND the employees are responsible. Shut this place down, move the dolphins to a safer well cared for place.

    • What are you talking about, Jill? This happened on a public beach in Argentina not at an amusement park. Some idiot tourist took the baby dolphin from the surf at a public beach. Although, I do believe SeaWorld should definitely be shut down. And anyone who insists that SeaWorld is a place worthy of a visit should have their head examined. SeaWorld is nothing but a prison for all the whales, dolphins, and sea lions which they exploit for the entertainment of other idiotic human beings like those at that beach.

  3. “The only difference between a dog, cat, horse and dolphin and a cow, chicken, pig and turkey is perception. One is no more valuable than another. And yet in this culture, we hold the former animals in high esteem and the latter we brutalize for food. All animals are deserving of respect and freedom from violence. The way to respect others is veganism.”
