    I suppose that would have been a happy story if you didn`t include the dead 13-year-old part in there.

    Was the cop actually looking for a dead kid or do you think someone called in reporting the dolphin and thought it was a body?

    I hate to be a jerk, but that bloody dolphin probably got swallowed up by a shark probably no more than 10 minutes after it swam off.

    I tend to believe the person who commented on the actual site - it`s not a dolphin, it`s a Pygmy Sperm Wale; it`s shark-like head is what gives it away. It doesn`t have ANY of the dolphin qualities to be a dolphin. Regardless of its species, it looks male. Females have two slits besides the vaginal slit, where the teets slip out.

    I agree, it`s definitely not a dolphin. Dolphins have a noticeable beak, even porpoises do too.

    Definitely a pygmy sperm. Lol.

    On my trip to Mexico about a month ago, I helped save a baby sperm whale that was thrashing around on rocks and corals. We got it out far and then it got towed by a boat, but it still wound up dead on some beach a few miles away the next day. :(

    K so they found a bloody, hurt, beached dolphin and stick it back into the water.... What`s to stop it from it bleeding to death from its injuries? Or from it`s blood attracting predators like a shark. How much you wanna bet this thing died.

    You think to negative about things... Maybe that happened maybe the dolphin lived because the salt in the ocean disinfected the wounds and help them heal faster and it lived to see the light of tomorrow? or the week after? or maybe you are correct and life took its brutal turn and killed its a$$. XD

    How much you wanna bet that thing would have died *without* their help as well. If it was just going to die, being in its own environment would at least have made it more comfortable.

    Also, as has been pointed out, it`s not a dolphin, and that`s not blood, so... end of.

    to all the comments about the animal choking to death...
    go back to third grade where you learned the differance between hot and cold blooded,
    sea mammals breathe air, hence the need for blow holes.
    the worry for a beached whale or dolphin is that its skin will dry out.

    I`m glad they had time to pose with the dying animal before attempting to help it.

    Priorities.

    "looking for a dead body of a 13 year old boy."
    Wow, dead body or save a dolphin, sure why not both. Couldn`t they do it themselves

    It looks like the dolphin ate the 13-year-old boy.

    @DarkMonkey, if you actually took the time to read some of the comments on the flickr site, they said 1 person couldn`t do it by themselves. Learn to read before judging.

    I just thought I would take the time to say that that was not a dolphin. It was a pygmy sperm whale relative, and when they are frightened they shoot red liquid.

    Way to go dude, and others. :P

    Definitely not a dolphin though, that`s a sperm whale, no doubt. I`m sure other people said it though, didn`t take time to check.
