Injured Dolphin Approaches this Diver for help - 03/13/14 11:43 AM

During a night dive last January at Gadren Eel Cove in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii; a bottlenose dolphin caught in a fishing line approached scuba diver Keller Laros for help.

The dolphin’s left pectoral fin was stuck, wrapped around fishing line with a hook embedded into its body. Laros, who was equipped with scissors, was able to free his fellow mammal and the amazing rescue was caught on film by Martina Wing.

Ive seen this video before and each time i am in awe at the gentleness and intelligence of these wonderful creatures. Im a PETA member as well as an activist in spreading awareness as to how wonderful dolphins really are and how education can stop the slaughters that take place each year of thousands of dolphins. We are all here to share this planet with respect to each other and that includes these wonderful friends we call dolphins. Thanks for sharing!
