NYTimes.co​m has related in its recent article that even though Amazon’s pink dolphins are protected, they are still in danger as local fishermen see a rival in dolphins.

Fishermen are slaughtering the animal in the Amazon, for catfish bait. Portugese biologist, Doctor Miguel Migueis who studies dolphin populations around the city of Santarem on the Amazon, has told that the killings could lead to their extinction: “They are killing their culture, their folklore, they are killing the Amazon!”

    Please stop mistreating animals! If you abuse a defenseless animal, then you are a coward!
