A mom dolphin was captured jumping around after fishermen release her baby dolphin from one of their nets.
When the boat was fishing in the waters around the Italian island of Procida, Naples. The dolphin was entangled in the net.
The mother jumped in joy as she sees her calf set free. If we want to push human characteristics on to the dolphin, it seems that she’s thanking them.
It is very cute when you see the newly free calf leap out of the sea. The fishers cheer as it splashes between the waves, both man and dolphin looked happy with the whole scenario.
Then the mom dolphin starts jumping to the sky, showcasing her moves in a series of dives, copying the baby one.
When both of dolphins go back into the ocean, fishermen claps and cheers, and they celebrate their good deed. Well done, chaps.
People have been brought to tears by watching the video of the incident, with many commenting on the men’s efforts.
One person said: “That was spectacular; one very happy mom dolphin showing so much gratitude at being reunited with its calf is truly heartwarming.”
Another, a bit cynically said: “Really beautiful and I love dolphins, but it could have been jumping out of the sea to see its calf better (one of the supposed reasons for dolphins jumping) or it could have been trying to communicate with its calf. Whatever the reason, they are amazing creatures.”
Studies say that dolphins are the most intelligent animals, apart from humans.
When we see so much cruelty towards animals, this incident of kindness made us cry. And, we believe that humanity still exists.
