Pictures of tourists in Hainan lifting an injured dolphin out of the water and posing with it have angered Weibo users after it emerged that the animal died.
According to the Shanghai Daily, the dolphin was found on June 16 in the Dadonghai resort in Sanya, a popular tourist town in Hainan. The animal was bleeding from its tail, and died later that night at a marine park. The dolphin is thought to have become stranded on the beach after its tail was hit by a fishing boat.
