Target: Blue Planet Organization
Goal: Track down and charge teens who forced sick dolphin to drink beer
A number of teenagers who gave beer to a sick dolphin in Peru are facing condemnation from animal activists all over the world. The teens, two boys and a girl, posted pictures of them on Facebook posing with a beached dolphin – in one picture pouring beer into the dolphin’s mouth.
The Blue Planet Organization, based in northern Peru, said that whether the young dolphin was alive or dead, the teens’ behavior was wrong and inhumane.
On the Facebook page where the Blue Planet Organization posted the pictures for the public to see, the animal rights group said, “We are definitely against these inhumane acts towards the dolphins, which are the masters of the seas. While many people are fighting to conserve and preserve their lives, others believe the animals are just a thing to play.”
Blue Planet is looking for information as to what happened to the dolphin after the teens left, as well as the identity of the teens so they can be dealt with accordingly by law enforcement.
These teens’ behavior is disgusting. Their total lack of regard for an animal deserves punishment. Help the Blue Planet Organization track these teens down so they can be dealt with by law enforcement.
Dear Blue Planet Organization,
The teens who posted pictures of themselves pouring beer into a beached dolphin’s mouth should be tracked down and dealt with according to Peruvian law. This terribly inhumane act should not go unpunished.
Dolphins and humans often have bad interactions, causing the deaths of many dolphins each year. These teenagers are only perpetuating a cycle of hurt for these wonderful animals. Please do not rest until you can find these teenagers.
