Dolphin approaches scuba divers looking for help

Dolphins are known for being highly intelligent mammals. So intelligent, in fact, that they can communicate with humans even when they have not been trained to do so. That's what happened to a group of divers on an observation trip off the coast of Hawaii, known as the Big Island.

While the divers were observing manta rays, they were approached by a bottlenose dolphin. Luckily for all of us, they captured the encounter on video and uploaded it to YouTube. Keller Laros, one of the divers, heard an unusual squeal from the dolphin. Laros realized the dolphin was in distress; a fishing line was wrapped around its pectoral fin. He described how he tried to remove the fishing line: "I was trying to unwrap it, I got the fishing hook out of the pectoral fin. ... I was worried if I tugged on it, it might hurt him more."

The amazing part of the video is how cooperative and gentle the dolphin is as the divers help him. Laros was able to get the hook out and snip the fishing line near the dolphin's mouth.

"The way he came right up and pushed himself into me, there was no question this dolphin was there for help," Laros said. Several YouTube commenters have praised Laros and his team for their effort.

I started to pie this, then I realized how terribly bad it was, then I thought maybe it was so bad that is was genius, then I saw who posted it and just decided to type this up instead.

What does all that mean? I have no idea.... but it's been a long day and I just want to go home and play on my slip in slide that I cover in apple sauce and hot pockets.

Son of a......that is brilliant!!!!

Whelp, see ya everyone... gotta get home before the silly racoons and alpacas start wrestling with the shingles on top of the barn.....you know, the barn where the slip and slide is kept.....right next to the 1948 Studebaker that is covered in dust, cornflakes, chlamydia, and dispair. Which reminds me, I really need to get a cover for that thing.


God a need a drink.....great dolphin story though.
