Dolphin bothering

The first man in Scotland to be convicted of recklessly harassing dolphins has been fined £500 for the offence.

I have to confess, this rates highly on my ‘what the hell?’ radar…and the Scottish courts judgements website is being its usual unhelpful self, so I may never know the details of how he harassed the poor things…obviously he was on a jet ski, but was he using them as ramps?!?!

One thought on “Dolphin bothering”

  1. According to the newspaper report I read he was splashing water whilst sitting on his jet ski. I assume that means he was driving around at high speeds? Apparently in the U.S you can be jailed for harrassing a whale. Now it may just be me but I would never ever take a whale on…
