Dolphin Caught in Fishing Line Approaches Divers for Help

By Melissa Knowels

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 agroup 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.

It should also be noted that at the beginning of the video, there is a disclaimer that reads, in part: “We do not advocate attempts by laypersons to rescue marine life. The assistance provided to this dolphin was given by professional divers with thousands of hours of experience at this dive site. It was an unusual event. The compassion extended to this animal by the divers is something we should aspire to do, not criticize.”

So far, the rescue has been viewed more than 466,000 times on YouTube. People are in awe of what the divers captured on film and what they were able to do.

Talk about being in the right place at the right time.

“Everything I learned I learned from the
movies.”
― Audrey Hepburn

There is something trully magical about the movies. Being able to get lost so fully in a story and falling in love, lust and hate with the characters. Sometimes its an ongoing love affair as your favorite book springs to life and your book crush is personified by an actor or actress. Movies provide you from a break of the everyday and this new year is going to be filled with some amazing movies that I can’t wait to see and hopefully they will live up to my expectations!

Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity–and even a bit of wizardry–Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.
