Man Saves Distressed Dolphin Trapped In Heavy Seaweed
Sure, most of us have seen the hedgehogs in our gardens and the swans in the park, but not many of us have been fortunate enough to come across a dolphin in the wild, let alone have the opportunity to rescue it from certain demise.
A family out boating in Australia came across a dolphin that got caught up in some seaweed in a sandbar. The poor animal was whistling in distress, having been tangled up in the seaweed for who knows how long. Seeing how the animal is suffering, the man ties himself to a rope with the other end tied up to the boat and get in the chilly water next to the dolphin.
Naturally, the poor thing is scared of the human, probably never having been so close to one before. But with a few gentle strokes on the back and dorsal fin, it is like the dolphin understands the man is only here to provide aid. Since the water is only up to just above the man’s knees, we can only imagine how hard it must be for the dolphin to get out of the shoal.
The gentle human uses his left hand to push the seaweed away, as he guides the dolphin towards the deeper water. The dolphin still looks a bit confused after the first attempt and returns back to the shallow, but our hero does not give up. Instead, he guides the dolphin one more time, ultimately convincing the mammal which way is home.
