A fascinating article this morning on Breakfast news, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-21176914

It looks as the dolphin was asking for help.

I saw this on this morning's news. What a great moment for those involved, and an indictment of man's pollution - the plastic and old nets around in the sea is horrible.

The report quite cheered me up, and as an ex diver I would love to have had such a wonderful experience.

It was an extraordinary thing to happen and shows the thought process and trust placed by the animal in a human. Perhaps it is as well that all animals are not as trusting in all humans though.

This story reminds me of "Androcles and the Lion" ... an Aesop's fable or a biblical tale / parable, where Andy pulls out a big thorn from the big cat's paw ... and ends up getting 'licked to death' in appreciation.

I was going to green tick fourm member's comment about an expert's view about dolphins either pushing humans towards the shore or out to sea.

Perfectly reasonable thinking but the post seems to have been silver moused for some reason.

Either that or I'm losing the plot?

It wasn't silver-moused, and you're not losing the plot, there was an admin glitch.

All is now well.

Forum Editor, thanks for the reply. I have been away for a few days so just catching up. If FM would like to re-post I would like to green tick it.

  Forum Editor 23:28 27 Jan 2013

I have also been away - hence the delay in my resolving the problem.

  rdave13 23:30 27 Jan 2013

lotvic ,thanks for a better explanation.

I go away for a few days and glitches happen.

"I go away for a few days and glitches happen."

That's what I've been saying, but in this case I have nobody to blame - it may have been my own fault. In any event, it - like your thread - is now resolved.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
