Identify and Prosecute Those Responsible for the Death of a Baby Dolphin

In Buenos Aires in early February, a tourist lifted a baby Franciscana dolphin out of the water and dozens of others crowded around to look. More and more people wanted to take selfies with the dolphin, and after being out of the water for too long it was clearly dead.

To not seek justice for this terrible act of selfishness and animal cruelty would be encouraging similar tragedies to happen in the future. People need to be held accountable for their behavior and bad judgement especially when it leads to death and suffering. Surely someone posted their "selfie of death torture" and these people need to be brought to justice. It was a picture of a murder and murder deserves justice. We can not let this beautiful creature die in vain. It should never have died at all.
