In this video I found on Mother Nature Network, a dolphin that is entangled in a fishing net swims up to divers for help. It is a beautiful, and inspirational, example of living beings trusting and helping each other. It would be nice if we had more of this. Maybe one day we will.
The dolphin had to surface for air once during the rescue, but it returned so Laros [the diver] could finish the job [of cutting off the fishing net]. Its presumed foresight, bravery and patience throughout the ordeal impressed the veteran diver, who says the video provides further evidence of dolphin intelligence.
“It’s a huge thrill to be able to help an animal that clearly knows what’s going on,” he tells NBC. “He made the effort to come to us. … The dolphin is really intelligent. It’s a relationship. He came to us because he had a problem.”
