A large group of idiotic Argentinian tourists killed a rare La Plata baby dolphin when they grabbed it out of the water and handed it to one another so they could each take a selfie with it.
The La Plata dolphin inhabits the coastal Atlantic waters along the southeast shoreline of South America, and has been listed on the Convention of Migratory Species of Wild animals as being in danger of extinction.
The New York Post reported:
A huge crowd passed around the squirming dolphin for photos, but dolphins can’t stay out of the water for long, and the animal died from dehydration.
There are approximately 30,000 La Plata dolphins left, and they’re only found off the coasts of Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil. The Argentinian Wildlife Foundation issued a statement reminding the public that the dolphins are a vulnerable species.
