A video has sparked outrage after a woman was filmed mounting a dolphin at what is reported to be Dubai Dolphinarium. Video by @jmcappiello shows the woman atop a dolphin, sliding into water, captioned: ‘dolphins have not evolved to beach themselves for long periods just so people can ride them. Beaching themselves slowly crushes dolphins’ internal organs but the trainer at Dubai Dolphinarium seems unaware of that fact.’
The video was shared by an animal activist, Julie Marie Capello, with a powerful caption about the dangers of dolphins being treated this way.
