Default Dolphins are paying the price!

Dolphins are dying in Persian Gulf while oil price is ranking up!
This is a second time two group of around 100 dolphins include 4 whales has been found on the beach in Persian Gulf.
Persian Gulf is 47 times polluted then standard average, because of oil leak.
I do not mean to heat up the political issue but it so sad to see these creatures are giving their life for nothing. they are just so cute to die

And you thought only tuna had to be dolphin-friendly. Now oil has to be too.

Horrifying. This is the result of an oil spill in July 2007, which the Iranian government has remained silent about until now:

Very sad to see so many intelligent creatures had suffered such an awful end.

When does it end? As we destroy ourselves, we take all the other creatures with us!

I am reminded of some things here...

One is a SF book involving the sea mammals demanding membership in the UN.

The other is a "news story" from theOnion titled: "Dolphins Evolve Human Hands: Holy *&%#, say scientists" and it was about how we should all be scared because the dolphins are forming a resistance and are going to make us pay for our crimes now that they can hold weapons.[^]

Appreciate for your concern
First group was on Iranian news too but it was not big deal as the second group was found. If you do research harder you will find it.
The think is; when oil price changes even one cent it becomes head line on news media all around the world but poor Dolphin?fs!!![}]

I hope this one is not true.
This is tradition every year in Denmark
Seems like pictures are old so hopefully it is not happening!

It would be nice if you didn't feel the need to post pictures from the past. I too hope this is still not happening in Denmark.

With the prices of oil hitting bottom, I hear many tankers are actually letting their oil spill into the ocean rather then receiving reduced prices for same, what a shame!

Red Sea??

Mainland Denmark does not those kind of hills by the water... This looks more like the shores of Norway..or around the British Isles.

A dreadful ugly sight...[B)][:0][xx(][V]
