Heartbreaking Video of Dolphin and Dead Calf

On July 17, 2012, video footage of a dolphin’s mourning ritual over it’s dead baby calf was released all over the world after photographers captured these heart-wrenching moments off the Guangxi Zhuang coast in China.

Once a dolphin calf is born, sources say that mothers usually push their calf towards the surface of the water to breath. But according to the Daily Mail UK, scientists noticed a large gash across the calf’s belly, leading them to believe it was struck by a boat propeller that could’ve caused its death.  Sadly, instead of a mother trying to give her calf it’s first breaths of air, scientists believe this was actually a mourning ritual.
