Police are looking for a man who was filmed callously carrying a stranded dolphin off of a beach in southern China.

The horrifying footage, taken at popular tourist destination Hailing Island in Guangdong province, was reportedly filmed during China’s three-day labor holiday on May 1st.

According to Channel News Asia, the man picked up the dolphin, which appeared to be lifeless, and swung it over his shoulder before driving away with it in a car.

As per China’s Law of Wildlife Protection, dolphins are one of the species that citizens are not allowed to hunt, kill, sell, or keep, even if the mammals are found dead.

“Dolphins are protected animals in China,” an official stated after the local fisheries bureau launched an investigation. “Whether it is dead or alive, it is wrong to take it away. He should have called the authorities to deal with the matter.”

“Is he going to boil the dolphin,” questioned one person, “This is simply disgusting.”

Local officials have confirmed that the man could face criminal charges for his action.

Could? He absolutely Should!
