This is (NOT FUN), This is (MURDER)!
A rare baby dolphin has died on the beach after selfish tourists pulled it from the ocean so they could take selfies with it.
Shocking footage from Santa Teresita beach in Buenos Aires, Argentina, shows the body of the marine mammal lying motionless on the floor as dozens of people surround it.
The Franciscana dolphin had been passed around between sun worshippers while they took out their phones and posed for pictures

It was then dumped on the side to die from dehydration and overheating from exposure to the sun.
A spokesperson for the Argentine Wildlife Foundation (AWF) condemned the actions of the tourists.
“This serves to inform the public about the urgent necessity to return these dolphins to the sea as soon as possible.”
The footage sparked fury from viewers, many taking to Twitter to vent their anger at the actions of those on the beach.
