I got chills watching this video Chris just sent me.
I did some googling and found out that it’s from the morning of March 5 of this year, from the town of Arraial do Cabo in Brazil. From GlobalPost:
According to Gerd Traue, who caught the incident on camera, the dolphins appeared at 8:00 AM on March 5.
His video (below) shows the pod dragged closer and closer to shore, seemingly by a strong current, until the animals lie stranded on the beach itself. Thrashing their bodies and making high-pitched squeals, they become stuck in the wet sand and are unable to swim back out to sea.
People approach, at first unsure of what to do, but soon cooperating to drag the dolphins back into the water by their tails.
You can literally hear the poor dolphins’ squeals.
