There has been a massive outcry in Argentina after reports emerged the tourists seeking a selfie have caused the death of a baby dolphin.
The selfish actions of some tourists in Argentina have reportedly resulted in the death of a baby dolphin, and it’s the second such incident in the last year, according to reports. Outrage is building worldwide over the latest incident, when the selfie takers shared their videos and images on social media platforms.
The latest incident took place on a beach in San Bernando back on Jan. 22 when tourists jumped in the water to pull out a baby dolphin that was swimming nearby. Many gathered to touch it and take pictures with it as the dolphin slowly died from being out of the water.
Another incident in February 2016 at the resort of Santa Teresita in Argentina resulted in the death of a La Plata baby dolphin, as tourists carried the doomed animal around the beach for photographs, and then abandoned the carcass. The La Plata dolphin is rare, with only about 30,000 left in the world, experts believe.
