Sadly, this wouldn't be the first time human curiosity and self-absorption has resulted in the death of an animal at the hands of camera-wielding tourists. Perhaps it's indicative of a growing drive to capture moments for virtual enjoyment, even at the expense of better judgment - and sometimes even innocent lives.
UPDATE: The tourist whose photographs on Facebook were originally embedded in this post has removed them. He has since stated that the dolphin was dead prior to being handled by the crowd.
In a video reportedly showing the animal being removed from the water, the dolphin appears listless in the surf, but not clearly deceased.
