Baby Dolphin Dies After Being Passed Around by Tourists for Selfies


An endangered baby dolphin was killed on a beach in Santa Teresita, Argentina last week after the animal was pulled from the water and passed around by beachgoers for petting and selfies.

The Franciscan dolphin is an extremely rare species. Like many sea creatures, it has difficulty breathing if left out of the water for long. After minutes on the beach, the dolphin overheated and died.

Several people posted their selfies online and were heavily criticized. "This incident should serve to remind people about the need to return these dolphins to the sea if one is found outside of the water," the World Wildlife Foundation said.
