A stunning dolphin stampede video has amazed viewers, but some are worried that the beautiful creatures are either scared or hurt? Is this the truth?
As many as 2,000 of the amazing sea creatures are featured in the video titled “Dana Point Dolphin Stampede.” The problem is, it was filmed from a whale-watching boat named the Dana Pride, and many people think that perhaps the boat scared or even hurt the beautiful creatures.
People were especially annoyed because the boat went right through the middle of the group of dolphins. The problem is, it was nearly impossible for the vessel to avoid the stampeding creatures because there were so many.
Marine mammal researcher Alisa Schulman-Janiger said, “They either ignore the boat, usually if they’re feeding, or they race over to the boat.” She thinks that the dolphins actually enjoyed the interaction with the Dana Pride.
