Chinese villager arrested for capturing and later gutting rare white dolphin

Witnesses in Ningde City in China’s eastern Fujian Province used a cellphone to video a local villager capture a rare white dolphin, tie it to his boat and later gut it – uploading the disturbing viral video to social media.

According to the Daily Mail, the video has garnered more than 20 million views. The dolphins, (Sousa chinensis) affectionately known as “mermaids”  and “the pandas of the sea” are endangered species. It is believed to have been captured in the East China Sea and not identified by fishermen  as the rare breed. It is not known if the animal was caught by accident or intentionally, but instead of notifying officials, the villager tied the dying animal to his boat and brought it back to shore where he gutted it.

The villager claimed the animal was dead when he found it and brought it on shore. The man was arrested by the Fujian Ocean and Fisheries Bureau for failing to alert authorities. The International Union for Conservation of Nature lists the dolphin as “near threatened,” and it remains on the “Red List.” Chinese white dolphins are protected in China; the same status given to giant pandas, Siberian tigers and snow leopards.

An investigation continues.

    I see a little movement. I hear a little cry. This Fujian monster was intent on killing this innocent beautiful angel. We can’t stand these people. The whole lot of them when only some are guilty. I hope there is street justice if the law does nothing.

    China is relentless in its inhumanity towards ALL animals – well, this hunk of maggot shit human should get what a certain population of this country deems ‘appropriate’ – throw him in a tank of boiling water and skin the bastard – it is OK to do this to dogs/cats – it sure should be OK to do to this asshole.

    The ONLY thing that these sadistic, sub-human maggot Chinese monsters care about are THEMSELVES. They’re rude, mean and NO ONE can turn their back on them because they’ll STAB anything living and make a meal out of it. They don’t care about female born children as they hold filthy men in such high regard that they’ll KILL a baby girl just because it’s a girl. One day, they will corner themselves into not having enough women who CAN bare children, just like what’s happening in India. They have brutally raped and murdered SO MANY YOUNG girls that they’re having to go to “outside” countries/villages to BUY a young girl to marry their disgusting sadistic men. Then they wonder WHY these WOMEN ABUSE THE CHILDREN born from rapists and pedophiles. YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW. To think that these sad and pathetic sub-human maggots want to rule the world. If I’m EVER confronted with one of these vile Asian maggots, I’ll shoot them in the head first and ask questions later. Period!
