Beached baby dolphin dies after selfie craze

A baby dolphin has died after selfie tourists took turns to take photographs of the animal.


Equinac, a non-profit organisation which is dedicated to saving stranded and beached sea life took to Facebook to post about the incident.

 It says when it arrived, the animal was already dead.

 Equinac further explained that tourists were not to blame for the animal's stranding, but had nevertheless caused it a large amount of stress.

 The animal had likely beached itself in Mojácar after becoming sick or separated from its mother.

 In one of the pictures the charity shared, a child is seen holding the dolphin and covering its breathing hole.
