Dolphins assault 4 swimmers in Japan


Dolphins attacked and injured 4 swimmers on a seaside in central Japan over the weekend.

A person in his 60s suffered bites to his fingers and damaged ribs after being rammed into by a dolphin a number of metres off Suishohama seaside on Sunday morning, 16 July. One other man in his 40s suffered bites to his arm on the identical seaside. Later within the day, two extra individuals have been attacked by dolphins.

Regardless of indicators warning swimmers to keep away from touching or approaching dolphins, native police say that six assaults have been recorded this 12 months.

Scientists recommend ‘that wild bottlenose dolphins discover swimming alongside people extremely worrying, discovering proof that it disrupts their behavioural routines,’ the BBC reported.
