Chinese police forces are seeking a man who saw a dying dolphin stranded on a beach, and then picked it up and simply walked off with it.
A video has emerged that shows a man wearing only his swimming shorts walking off the beach, followed by his wife, with the large sea creature over his shoulder.
The footage was taken in the popular tourist resort of Hailing Island during the Chinese three day long holiday around 1 May – which is International Worker’s Day.
A local marine patrol volunteer on the beach, which is in Guangdong Province, said that there were several witnesses who said they saw the man walk over, pick up the ailing dolphin, and carry it off into the distance.
The tourist was also spotted smiling as he carried off the stranded sea mammal.
It is thought that the man thought that the dolphin was going to die anyway and took if away without realizing that it is illegal to do so.
