A man who died during July 4th celebrations in Louisiana had his body brought to shore by dolphins.

47-year-old Luis Arturo Polanco Morales and another man had jumped in to the water to save a girl who fell in after fishing on the rocks, while the girl was saved Morales was dragged out by the tide and drowned. His body was later found after dolphins had carried it back to shore.

"July Fourth weekend ended in tragedy for one family when a man drowned after being caught in an undertow."

Verneph: wait a minute. We've rescued them from nets? Who the heck put the nets out there in the first place?! I'd be happy to taste a dolphin if you have one, but don't respond to someone stating that we're such horrible creatures for poisoning the water by stating that we sometimes rescue dolphins from our OTHER method of killing them! Tell us we rescue them from sharks or some other happy-sappy BS.

Humans have this suprising level of arrogance and ignorance, giving ourselves self-titled "uniqueness", that we're the only ones capable of compassion, reason, logic, all kinds of traits and feelings that we like to think that are only human to own... in reality it's far from it, plenty of mammals, birds and fish display these traits, sure we are indeed more expressive with distinct body language and clearly visible facial expression of emotions, but that doesn't make us any better than them. The things that we truly mastered and can claim to be ours is manipulative skills, knowledge and mathe... [More]
