I've always believed animals are much more intelligent than people give them credit for.   Dolphins have always been known to be one of the most intelligent mammals.

This story is heartbreaking for any animal lover.  I questioned myself about posting this, but I decided to go ahead with it because once again proves the "theory" that animals are extremely intelligent and should be treated as such.

A mother dolphin off the coast of China was filmed trying to keep her calf afloat. As a boat of tourist came closer they realized the calf was dead and had been for a few days.

A fisherman identified as Mr. Su said: "The little dolphin was dead for two or three days, but its mother still stayed with it and carried it day and night, which has touched all of us and the tourists. Just like human beings, dolphins also have feelings. A mother's love is noble and moving."

The calf had long cuts across its belly, and it's thought that a boat propeller is to blame for the gashes.
