Two of the dolphins from a pod that protected swimmers from sharks have been killed by poachers, prompting some colourful reactions by New Zealanders:
An angry Mr Howes (one of the rescued swimmers) said whoever mutilated the dolphins should be castrated.
"In light of what has happened at Ocean Beach I would give them a taste of their own medicine," he said. "This is how we repay them for their help?"
Oh man, I’m with him. Though it might be more interesting to toss ’em in the water and let the sharks take care of matters.
On the bright side, the community is so angry that I don’t think poachers will find it easy doing business in that part of the world for quite a while…
