Whangarei, New Zealand.<br><br><br><br>
A pod of dolphins is being praised for providing a protective barrier<br><br>
around a group of swimmers who were being threatened by a great white shark<br><br>
off the north-eastern coast of New Zealand.<br><br><br><br>
Rob Howes and three other lifeguards were on a training swim about 100<br><br>
yards off shore at Ocean Beach near here when the dolphins raced in and<br><br>
herded the group together.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
"They started to herd us up, they pushed all four of us together by doing<br><br>
tight circles around us", Howe said.<br><br><br><br>
He said he spotted a 10-foot-long shark cruising toward the swimmers. They<br><br>
were surrounded by the dolphins for 40 minutes before they were able to<br><br>
make it back to shore.<br><br><br><br>
Nice one flipper!<br><br><br><br><br><br>

Send the article to Japan. I just finished watching 'Earthlings' the other day and almost threw up when I saw the Japanese fisherman gutting live dolphins on the streets.

That is awesome. Dolphins rock. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:"><br><br><br><br>
Sadly, that's likely as eloquent as I'll be all day.

Here is a link to the same story: <a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/4034383.stm" target="_blank">link</a><br><br><br><br>
That really is very touching. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:">

Nothing against dolphins or anything, but how is this specifically a vegan and vegetarian issue? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

It's not. It was posted in the wrong forum. I moved it to a more appropriate forum. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
