Dead Dolphin Investigation
7:02am 27th July 2013
It is thought that mobile phone footage could hold the key to finding the killer of a dolphin off Daymer Bay.
Up to 20 boats surrounded a pod of bottlenoses on Saturday 20th July.
Police are investigating after one ended up dead.
They want people who filmed it to hand over their video.
Devon and Cornwall Police released this statement:
The juvenile dolphin was found dead at around 4.45pm on Saturday 20 July at The Rumps, north east of Pentire Point, which is between Polzeath and Port Quin.
Police are keen to speak to any witnesses who saw a number of boats circling around the dolphins on Saturday afternoon.
In particular they would like any photographs or videos of the boats, which were part of the flotilla of up to 25 boats, between 1.30pm and around 5pm on Saturday.
PC Del Allerton-Baldwin, Wildlife Crime Officer on the Marine and Coastal Policing Team in Bodmin, said: "We would like to get a list of all boats that were in the area at the time. They should all have names on them.
"Many of the boat users were in fact behaving responsibly around the dolphins and keeping a distance of around 100 yards. However a few appear to have been harassing them.
"If you were part of the flotilla, it does not mean you were committing an offence but we would like to speak to you and eliminate you from our enquiries. You may also have vital information which may assist with the investigation."
Anyone with information, photographs or video clips is asked to call police on 101 quoting 399 of 21/07/13.
