The ultimate beauty of nature was caught on camera when a terrified Dolphin tries to escape himself from hunters coming to caught him in the net. Ric O’Barry, the founder of Dolphin project was there and Dolphin immediately recognises him and came near him to save his life. However, Ric was unable to do anything because of limitations at his end (As seen in this video)
Rick O’Barry is the founder of Dolphin Project and Star in the movie “The Cove”, “The Cove” was actually a documentary based on Dolphins. Possibly the beautiful Dolphin has recognised Rick and came near him in a hope of getting escaped from the hunters.
One stricken animal, overwhelmed by fear, seems to intuitively recognize a friend. He throws himself on the rocky shore at O’Barry’s feet, desperately thrashing and rolling onto his back as he tries to escape.
Rick says “Over 100s of Men are doing this and they do not represent Japanese People, it was not our culture. This is so stressful and so difficult to witness, I almost got into the water and almost touched him. I would have been arrested for this”
There are many issues raised by Rick on the same matter which includes the importance of providing the correct ways to catch the Fishes and not to be that cruel to catch the endangered species.
“This is anguish,” O’Barry says, crouching down by the tragic scene. “[He’s] panic-stricken on the rocks, and I am heartbroken that I can’t get in the water and help him away from … he’s tearing his skin up. This is awful.” Release does come — but in the worst way. A boat of fishermen slowly makes its way over to the beached animal as O’Barry watches over him. When they arrive, they roughly grab the dolphin by a fin, pushing him out into the water — but the animal can barely swim. “That dolphin’s not going to make it,” O’Barry says. “He’s given up.”
