Heartbreaking Tearjerker of the Day: Sad news out of the animal kingdom this morning — earlier this month, fisherman in China witnessed a dolphin mom “battling to keep her dead calf afloat” for what appears to have been several days.
Fisherman Luo Lieqiangre, who witnessed the dolphin mourning, said he and tourists watched as the calf fell off its mother’s back several times. (Here’s the requisite video.Heads up — it’s slightly graphic.)
“The sea was rough when we saw the dolphins,” he said.
The dead animal had a gash on its belly about a foot long, likely from a boat propeller.
“Its mother still stayed with it and carried it day and night, which has touched all of us and the tourists,” Lieqiangre said.
