    Dolphin Dies Being Passed Around For Selfies

    Beachgoers gather around a small dolphin after it is scooped out of the sea off the coast of Argentina.

    Video: Tourist Selfies Kill Baby Dolphin

    A young dolphin has died after beachgoers took it from the sea to pose for photographs with it.

    Huge crowds gathered around the small animal on the beach resort at Santa Teresita in Argentina after one man picked it up.

    But it appears it quickly overheated and died while out of the water.

    It was still being passed around by the beachgoers after its death and was later left discarded in the sand.

    The dolphin was from the La Plata - also known as the Franciscana - variety, found off the coasts of Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil.

    It is considered a "vulnerable" species because there are only about 30,000 left in the world.

    The Argentine Wildlife Foundation later issued a reminder to the public of the mammal's extreme vulnerability, hoping it will prevent such a sad event again.

    "The Franciscana, like other species, cannot remain for much time outside of the water, it has thick fatty skin which gives it heat and means that taking it out of the water rapidly causes it to dehydrate and die," it said in a statement.

    "This occasion serves to inform the public about the urgent necessity to return these dolphins to the sea as soon as possible if they find them on the shore.

    "It is fundamental that people help to rescue these animals, because every Franciscana counts now."

    Assholes.

    Was in Cozumel a few years back and these fucking rednecks off a Carnival cruise ship were in the water not too far from where we were sitting. They pick up a starfish and yell to their girls who are hanging on the beach. Next thing I know, they are out of the ocean with the starfish on the beach. I'm sitting there trying to figure out how I can rescue the starfish, because reasoning with these people seems like a lost cause. Suddenly a staff member of the club that owns the beach is there yelling at them about how the beach is protected and it's a crime for them to mess with the ecosystem. They took the starfish back to the ocean and nicely laid it down. Shitheads.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I hate people.

    I'd like to drag those dumb fucks to the bowels of the ocean so a few deep sea monsters can get a "selfie".

    The good news is there's a 50% chance they'll all get dysentery.
