    Dolphins Rescue an Exhausted Dog Drowning in Florida Canal in the Most Incredible Way

    It is really no myth that dolphins are intelligent and compassionate creatures. In fact, a pod of dolphins swimming in the canal on Marco Island, Florida, proved beyond any shadow of a doubt just how compassionate they can be.

    The dolphins came across a drowning dog, an 11-year-old Doberman Pinscher named Turbo belonging to local resident Cindy Burnett. Turbo had escaped on a Sunday night after his gate was left open; when the dolphins found him, Turbo had been missing for 15 hours.

    “I searched and searched and called his name,” Burnett told NBC 2. “I drove through this street at least five or six times.” Nobody knew that the dog had fallen into the canal. That is, until the dolphins realized that Turbo wasn’t going to be able to save himself. They started a persistent chorus of splashing, alerting neighbors a half-mile away to the poor dog’s whereabouts.

    The neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. D’Alessandro, from Pennsylvania, who were on vacation, according to Tree Hugger, heard the dolphins’ cacophony as they were on their way to go fishing. “We saw these two dolphins,” they said, “and they were splashing and making this big commotion.”

    As a curious Audrey D’Alessandro approached the canal to investigate, she noticed the exhausted Doberman. He was too tired from treading water to bark for himself and the canal wall was too high for him to climb out.

    A shocked Audrey alerted the authorities, and it wasn’t long before firefighters rushed to the dog’s aid. They pulled him out of the water, to Burnett’s extreme relief, and not a moment too soon. “He was shivering and in a lot of distress,” Burnett said, adding a sobering thought: “If he’d had to tread water all night long, I know he wouldn’t have been able to.”

    Dolphins are amazing.

    Oh good. He'll live to attack another day.

    Okay, so I watched a pod of orcas swimming with a snorkeler.

    Can you explain, Dr Who, why orcas don't chow down on humans? This never ceases to amaze me, but then I'm not the brightest star in the night.
    The only way to stop democrats' insane drive to impeach Trump and all their other illicit shenanigan is to force them to pay for it all out of their own pockets when they lose.

    Simple answer - they're not on the menu and orcas don't kill just for fun.

    Of course, how silly of me. Let me be more definitive: Why aren't humans on the orca menu at the Sea of Delights Restaurant?

    The menu consists of marine species only i.e. something orcas normally find in the ocean. Humans are not often found in the water and orcas are picky eaters.

    Are you suggesting they simply haven't discovered the yummy delight of human flesh. It's much more than that, certainly.

    Besides peeps in bikinis and rubber suits with air tanks, what else don't they eat? Other land animals? What would be the common denominator, hair? They don't like hair?

    Actually, orcas do kill for fun. So do dolphins but I agree we're not on the menu. That's true of sharks too. Most attacks are cases of mistaken identity.

    The reason is precisely what Dr. Who said it was. We're not marine animals. The typical reactions to humans in the water are curiosity and indifference.

    I've heard of bottlenose dolphins killing for sport, but not orcas.

    I doubt that hair comes into it. They have been known to prey on moose swimming between islands but that's probably because moose spend a great deal of time in the open water and have become recognized as prey by the whales. Besides, they love to eat seals and they have fur. I guess we just don't smell very tasty and don't look like anything else that they eat.
