Selfie-obsessed tourists kill baby dolphin

A baby dolphin has died after tourists took it out of the water and posed for selfies with it on a packed beach.

The female had become separated from its mother and was stranded in shallow water off a beach in Mojacar in southern Spain. Beachgoers handled it, patted it, removed it from the water and passed the animal around as they posed for photos.
A non-profit group wrote: “Humans are the most irrational animal there is. Many people are unable to feel empathy for a living being which is frightened, starving, without its mother and terrified. In their selfishness, all they want is to photograph it and touch it, even if the animal is suffering."
