Dolphin Carries Her Dead Baby for Three Days

A dolphin carrying her deceased calf out to sea was filmed off the coast of the Guangxi Zhuang region, in China. The female dolphin was spotted carrying the 1.5-meter long baby on her dorsal fin as she swam in the Sanniang Bay.

It’s pink skin indicated it was a newborn and it is believed the female has carried it since its death three days ago. A large gash, approximately a foot long, was visible across the calf’s belly.It is possible the infant was killed by the propeller of a boat.

The dolphin was thought to be moving her dead calf away from the shore to lay it to rest in deeper water.
