A baby dolphin has died after it washed up on a beach and was subsequently passed around and photographed by tourists in Spain

Photos show a child covering the baby dolphins blow hole and an Eqinac rescuer later holding the dolphins dead body.

Equinac raced to get to the beach once they were alerted, but the dolphin was already dead on their arrival.

They have condemned the "selfish" and "irrational" people and actions which casued the death. An autopsy is to be carried out.

What do you think of this story? Humans seem to be very good at damaging and hurting nature and animals, often more out of lack of awareness than straight malice.

Do you agree with Equinac's statement?

This thread reminded of the Inbetweeners movie when Neil accidentally kills a dolphin by feeding it fast food lol.

Classic vegetarian propaganda. What a cheap trick.

I eat meat and eggs, but they don't come from some *****y conditions like this. Just because you're a meat eater doesn't mean you condone animal cruelty. I bet you live in a city and don't have the first idea about farming or animal welfare. Probably never even been on a farm, but think you can sit there in moral superiority over others.

This makes me incredibly sad. There needs to be far more education around the environment and taking care of it. People can be so destructive.

Classic "sensible middle aged man" being a twit.

1. I'm not a vegetarian.

2. I don't live in a city.

3. I have been on farms and volunteer in ecology conservation, which involves being in and around farms.

4. That baby dolphin probably had at least as good a life as the stuff that has died so you can eat it.

None of this is remotely relevant. If you were able to make a coherent argument, you wouldn't need to resort to making such ludicrous posts comparing meat eaters with battery hen farming. The agenda was boring several years ago - it's not aged well.

I dont' have time for this - there's people getting examination results who need help and guidance. Vegetarian-agenda trolling comes low down on my list of priorities.

It's disturbing that this is a repeated occurrence; people should know better.

Every one of those people should be in jail.

Whether they were aware of it or not, they contributed to the death of conscious and social animal. As a society, we are far too soft on murderers of this kind.
