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]

      • WE ARE ALL DISGUSTED AND OUTRAGED THAT WE KEEP SIGNING PETITIONS AGAINST THESE MUTANTS FOR DECADES!!!! WHEN THE f*** ARE OFFICIALS, INCLUDING POLICE, PROSECUTORS AND JUDGES GOING TO DO WHAT THEY ARE GETTING PAID FOR, AND WHAT THEY HAVE SWORN TO DO: PROTECT THE INNOCENTS AND PROSECUTE THE GUILTY, IN PUNISHMENT THAT FITS THE CRIME????!!!!

  2. The POSs responsible know only evil. Their heartless hollow bodies despise the pure light and beauty of these most innocent creatures as these sick indiviuals want to steal that light; that beauty, knowing they will NEVER be perfect as are these creatures.

  3. People with infinite stupidity and we have to tolerate them.

  4. Tammy+Rossetti says:

  5. Hope these mother fuckers will be hunted down!!!

  6. Maria Lavorato says:

    NO ANIMAL CRUELTY SHOULD BE TOLERATED! PROSECUTE TO THE FULL THESE HEARTLESS BASTARDS THAT MADE THESE TWO DOLPHINS SUFFER NEEDLESSLY WITHOUT ANY REGRET.

    SO THE LAW SHOULD GIVE THEM ALL THE SYMPATHY BACK. MURDER 1 JAIL TIME AND HEFTY FINES!!!! HOPE YOU ALL PAY AND PRONTO!!!!

    DISGUSTING PARASITES!!!! WHAT TYPE OF HUMAN WOULD DO SUCH DESPICABLE ACTS?….judges?

  7. Debra Simons says:

    Anyone involved in this should be eliminated permanently ASAP. it is disgusting and horrifying and heartbreaking

  8. Loraine Pretorius says:

    My heart breaks that such evil monsters live amongst us. I sincerely pray that they are punished to the full extent of the law and should be banned from ever being allowed on any beach or on the sea ever again. What astounds me is that there must have been people around this and not beaten the living daylights out of these monsters and they are as guilty. If you witness cruelty…ACT.. stop it. SHAME ON YOU ALL.

  9. Find the people and deal with them harshly. These POS’ need to be executed! Earth is overpopulated with humans; let’s get rid of the BAD humans!

  10. Monsters who committed these terrible unthinkable animal cruelty need to be brought to justice. Personally I don’t think they deserve this beautiful planet. AT least make sure that they serve time. They are danger to society as a whole.

  11. Well, the judges are probably GOP so they don’t give a shit about animals, babies, women, the planet, etc. it makes me so sad, and mad, that these poor creatures have to be abused like that, and assholes get away with it. I’m not a violent person, but I want to kill them. Eye for an eye. Sorry, but that’s how I feel.

  12. Yet more pieces of shit walking this earth How much longer are the courts going to do nothing about it – someone with balls should give these sadistic bastards a taste of their own medicine!

  13. Kim+Singer says:

    It’s like I always say. People are garbage.

  14. Jacquie. “ says:

    Charged with animal abuse and not trying to help the dolphin, airhead beach goers!! The others should be impaled , too.

  15. These cruel evil punks deserve NOTHING LESS than the same abuse/death they inflicted on these totally defenseless dolphins. Animal abuse CANNOT AND MUST NOT BE TOLERATED. IN MY OPINION.

  16. One has to wonder if evolution is regressing, when “homo sapiens ” like these behave like they are still in the jungle and civilisation has passed them by.

  17. What is up with people in Florida and Texas torturing animals horrifically? It’s disgusting! Maybe these state governors need to implement new animal cruelty laws! You know they won’t.

  18. ALL these CRUEL IDIOTS NEED TO CHARGED WITH ANIMAL CRUELTY AND RECEIVE THE EXACT TORTURE AS THESE INNOVENT DOLPHINS DID!!!!!!!

  19. Anthony S Marici says:

    One more reason why I hate people.

  20. Agree all comments,Get these cunts and spear them justice needs to be dealt with now and needs to be harsher punishment as its not changing anything for animal cruelty still going on . Something needs to be done now the same treatment should be done back to the person who dies this. Then execute them.
