Yes, you read that correctly. UFC fighter Cathal Pendred spent this morning trying to save a baby dolphin and succeeded. The mixed martial artist was walking along Doonbeg Beach in Clare when he came upon a small baby dolphin that appeared to be drowning. Apparently, it’s common enough for dolphins to drown as they’re mammals and need air just like us.
Pendred dived into the sea and attempted to save the dolphin. Sure enough, he did and the little bugger swam off, happy as Larry. Here’s the tweet Pendred posted later that day.
Fair play, Pendred. Your PETA membership card is in the post.
