Baby dolphin rescued from fishing net by police officer (VIDEO)

A police officer rescued a young dolphin tangled in a fishing net off the coast of Miami in the United States, a video shared by the police department on Wednesday showed.

Miami-Dade Police Officer Nelson Silva cut the fishing net to free the dolphin on December 10. “I got you, buddy,” Silva said while helping the dolphin, who eventually swam away free from nets.

It’s unknown how long the dolphin had been stuck in the net. According to the Florida International University, around 300,000 whales and dolphins get caught in fishing nets each year.
