  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Posted 31 May 2014 - 12:59 PM

One day, my research team and I were following a school of bottlenose dolphins near shore as we do on a regular basis in the waters off Los Angeles, California. We just wrapped up our photo-identification work and were moving on to take video of dolphin social interactions and enter data on behavior.

The dolphins were still feeding in circle near shore, when suddenly, one individual changed direction heading out toward deeper water.

That young lady will have a great story to tell her children and grandchildren.

Maybe another dolphin communicated to the pod with beeps, cracks, and whistles and alerted them of the situation. The pod left after recieving the 411 on the girl, leading the team to the target area. There are so many reports of un- believable dolhin interventions.

From the article:

"I cut the engine and called the lifeguards on the VHF radio. They told us not to do anything until they arrived on site but it was our unanimous feeling that if we didn’t act immediately, the girl would die. We decided to ignore lifeguard’s instructions, instead pulling the frail and hypothermic body on board."

Why on Earth would the lifeguards tell people not to get the girl out of the water?? This seems insane! Good thing the researches actually had brains.

Also, I sincerely hope she gets the help she needs and recovers positively from her suicide attempt.

Who knows if they did it on porpoise or not (sorry couldn't resist, I shall submit myself for punishment at your leisure). Either way it is a great story and just one of those wonderful little anecdotes that nature gives us every now and then.

Thank goodness all turned out so well.  The young lady can thank her lucky stars that some very intelligent and caring beings saved her life that day, human and otherwise.

Fascinating story. Yes, these kinds of anecdotal stories pop up on a regular basis, but what surprised me most was the first comment on that National Geographic article, and I quote;


"what really happens with animals is that God allows animals to react to the prompting of angels to come to the aid of humans. Animals are creatures of God and humans, through Christ life and redemption on the cross, have become children of God. there is a distinction. God has given humans doinion over animals. god made animals for humans , not humans for animals. sometimes humans get that reversed!"

Clearly we have some more work to do, /sigh.

More than brains, they had common sense and courage enough to disregard what the authorities had said.

No surprise that the dolphins could or would do this. Animals have powers that humans do not. :gun:

Thankfully animals are dumb and lack souls making it OK with governments to preform horrible experiments on them...
