Seriously. What. Is. Wrong. With. People! We almost weren’t going to share this story, but we felt that people needed to be educated on what not to do when a dolphin or other mammal/fish washes up on shore.

Tourists at the Santa Teresita beach in Buenos Aires, Argentina, witness something that should have been amazing – a baby dolphin washed up on shore. But unfortunately, the helpless animal died of dehydration after a group of selfish tourists pulled it from the water to take “selfies”.

After the idiots were done taking their photos, they then dumped it and left it to die from exposure to the sun and dehydration.

A spokesperson for the Argentine Wildlife Foundation (AWF) said: “This serves to inform the public about the urgent necessity to return these dolphins to the sea as soon as possible.”

The Franciscana dolphin is a rare species as there are only 30,000 left on in the entire world.
