A baby dolphin died after being handed round by bathers posing for photographs on a packed tourist beach. The small female, still of breastfeeding age, lost its mother and became stranded in shallow waters off the coast.

Thoughtless tourists pulled it from the sea and passed it around for selfies. Marine conservationists raced to the scene but the dolphin was already dead.
The incident happened last Friday on a beach at Mojacar, in the province of Almeria. It was not clear if any Brits were involved in the incident.
Last April sunbathers in Argentina were branded ‘selfie-taking scum’ after being blamed for taking a dolphin out of the water and posing for selfies.
