Fisherman in India who caught dolphin in net carries it back out to sea

In Purina, India, a fisherman who accidentally caught an endangered dolphin in his net, picked it up and gently carried the dolphin away from the nets before releasing it back into the sea.

According to Southwest News Service, on July 3, the animal identified as a Ganges River dolphin and listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and protected by the Indian Wildlife Act, is believed to have strayed into the waterway from the Ganges.

Fox News reports the dolphin became entangled in the fishing net and a huge crowd gathered around to check out the aquatic mammal. The people in the village called local authorities to have the dolphin relocated to a safe area. The fisherman was spotted carrying it out and releasing it.

It’s only right to be a responsible human – most of us know to do what is right.
