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.

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.

@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.

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.

How could you look at that and think it`s a dolphin?

"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."

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.

Maybe the dolphin will find that dead 13-year-old to show her gratitude.

Apparently, it`s a pygmy sperm whale? Hence the "bloody" mess from it.

I`m a little concerned about the whole looking for a kid`s dead body...

Well, thanks for nothing. Dolphins beach themselves when they are sick. I am sure it went back and spread dolphin A.I.D.S to the rest of its pod by now. Hope your happy!

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

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. :(

I`m sure the cop told them not to touch her until he arrived, and THAT`S when they started taking pictures. Christ, people always gotta try to find the evil in someone.

"Teh red liquid wasn`t blood - Pygmy Sperm Whale`s release that liquid when they`re frightened."

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

Definitely a pygmy sperm. Lol.

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.

looked like it was as good as dead anyway though, blood will attract sharks and that thing is in no condition to swim to safety

well the dolphin was all bloody... chances are he beached because he was sick or injured. he probably beached somewhere else and died!

"Hate to be anal about this, but it looks more like your girlfriend just sat there while you and your dad hoisted it back into the water."

Everyone needs someone to cheer them on. Or at least supervise. I excel at that role.

Come on lift those shingles up that ladder,,, yeah you can do it!!

"can i get some help?"

I`m motivating you ain`t I?

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.
