Dolphins Stabbed To Death In Colombia

Dolphins Stabbed To Death In Colombia

ATLANTICO — Authorities in this northern Colombia beach community were investigating the suspicious deaths of two dolphins, whose corpses were washed ashore and appeared to have been stabbed repeatedly, Bogota daily El Espectador reports.

The mammals' remains were found in the district of Playa Mendoza in the Atlántico department. They may have been killed after getting caught in a mesh or trammel net. An Environmental Police officer, Edwin Vega, told Colombia's Caracol radio that the dolphins had been "stabbed more than 12 times."

Vega said when dolphins are caught in fishing nets, fishermen must "do everything possible so they survive. There is jail for this type of murder." The dolphins, he added, had entered local fishing waters in what was currently their mating season, and the trammel nets the fishermen may have used "are forbidden in this part of the Atlantic."
