Dolphins Ridden Like a Horse and Impaled By Spear While Begging for Food Deserve Justice

Target: Richard Spinrad, Administrator of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

Goal: Find and fully punish individuals allegedly responsible for dolphin deaths.

Two separate but equally tragic incidents demonstrate the sheer inhumanity federally protected marine life still must endure at the hands of careless people. The first incident, which took place on a Texas beach, involved a stranded female dolphin who was surrounded by a group of beach-goers. Some members of the group reportedly pushed the ailing dolphin back into the sea and then attempted to ride her. The dolphin eventually became re-stranded, where she was again reportedly harassed by humans until she died. A few weeks earlier, a Florida beach became the scene of another dolphin fatality when a nursing female was discovered deceased. Authorities suspect this animal was impaled near the eye by a spear or a similar sharp object while she begged for food.

Unfortunately, dolphins are the frequent target of such blatantly cruel acts. In the Gulf of Mexico alone, over two dozen have been killed in recent years. The Marine Mammal Protection Act is supposed to safeguard these animals and ensure violators are brought to justice. The punishment, however, may end at a fine.

Sign the petition below to demand the agency investigating both these horrendous crimes seek the maximum penalty that includes jail time.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Dr. Spinrad,

Fort Meyers Beach in Florida and Texas’ Quintana Beach recently became the scenes of the latest acts of cruelty perpetrated against federally protected dolphins. One case apparently involved a group of people quite literally harassing a dolphin to death. In the other tragedy, a mother dolphin was stabbed in the head as she approached an unknown person or persons, mouth open as if awaiting a feeding.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is investigating both of these incidents. When suspects are identified, please do not give them a slap on the wrist for clear violations of the Marine Mammal Protection Act. Send a decisive message that these cruelties will not be tolerated.

Ensure these reckless individuals serve time in jail.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    All people involved in killing those poor dolphins deserve to be executed

    • Dolphins are so friendly with humans. They must be stupid and hearthless to injure and kill these beautiful dolphins. I agree with you.

  3. G Featherston says:

    Ah Texas. Ah Florida. Lands of humanity. Not!

  4. THESE PEOPLE ARE STUPID AND EVIL, THEY SHOULD BE PROSECUTED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW!

  5. Will there never be an end to man’s inhumanity? disgusting.

  6. MAX JAIL or DEATH PENALTY for this type of DEHUMANIZED, DESENSITIZED and BRUTALIZED CRIME! These perpetrators are not humans, but hellish monsters and should be wiped OFF the surface of this Planet. The human lowlife scum who killed this innocent, defenseless and adorable dolphin deserves DEATH PENALTY!
    Animals shall NOT be VICTIMS of human sadistic psychopaths.
    This dolphin deserves JUSTICE – just like YOU and ME!
    Animal abuse shall be treated as any human abuse!

  7. Jaime Perez says:

    What in the hell is wrong with people?? There are some soulless, sick devils out there. There is absolutely no excuse for the mistreatment of innocent animals. People who do terrible things to animals, deserve the death penalty.

  8. Julia Edinger says:

    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH
    Eva Cantu

  11. American Girl says:

    Cull these inhumane lowlifes from society. There needs to be more protection for these creatures of God and severe punishments. Remember this assholes, if we dont get ya here, God for sure will get ya there!

  12. Raymond Stevens says:

    The scum that did this should be killed.

  13. “Careless “ ain’t the word I’d use. “Cruel,””crap-headed” “vicious,” “abusive “ etc. And I’d substitute “people “ in this case with”scum.”

    That shoul be washed away, flushed down the toilet or cesspool with the rest of the excrement, and the place professionally sanitized.

  14. These evil,mentally deranged cretins must have the death penalty implemented without delay!

  15. This is so disturbing. Whoever the cowards are that did this need to be caught (I’m sure there is video) and charged with felonies. No easy plea deals from lazy prosecutors. Too bad they can’t be destroyed as the dolphins are worth alot more than they will ever be.
