Dave the dolphin is protected by animal welfare legislation as he swims in waters off the Kent coast. Two men are being questioned following their arrest after police received harassment reports against the dolphin.
Insp Gavin Roy said: “They are protected by law and should be treated with respect.”
Animal welfare charities have previously expressed concern over swimmers, kayakers and other watercraft users possibly causing distress or alarm to Dave. I wonder if any of them wear hoodies.
The paperchase begins. And there must be detected crimes to be had somewhere.
The same thing happens to old, weak and vulnerable people all over the country, gangs of the hooded hoardes get a lot of their enjoyment out of teasing and intimidating the old, weak and vulnerable. Surely thats harrassment as well ?
As the Inspector so rightly says, “They are protected by law and should be treated with respect.”
