"Killer Dolphins" attacking each other for food.
Remember the dolphins we see either on TV or in aquariums where they jump through hoops and performs tricks in front of crowds of people. Well, these dolphins are not as innocent as we perceive them out to be. Now being labelled as the "killer dolphins" these mammals are responsible for the growing number of dead harbour popoises that are being washed up on the British shores.
Amy had a story on how Mexico investing to save these endangered porpoises here. Fishermans are not the only ones that are endangering the porpoises, but their dolphin cousins are slowly killing them off too.
Attacks by gangs of 'killer dolphins' are responsible for the growing number of dead harbour porpoises washed up on the British shore, wildlife experts say.
They believe a brutal 'surf war' over food has broken out between bottlenose dolphins and their smaller, more gentle cousins.
There are also fears that the predators have begun to pick on smaller members of their own dolphin family.
'Despite their friendly image bottlenose dolphins can be aggressive towards one another and on the rare occasion that we see a dead bottlenose wash ashore it often has rake or tooth marks inflicted by its own species,' she said.
'But we have recently begun to see an increase in the numbers of young and female harbour porpoises that have clearly been attacked by bottlenose dolphins and results from the post mortems carried out on these animals confirm this.'
Now when you are on vacation, think twice before entering that tank full of dolphins and grabbing onto its' fin and letting it drag you around the water.
