The world of fish and mammals seems ever in the eye of the media and ITN video shows a funeral of a dolphin in New Zealand North Island which attracted a lot of attention over the years and in its friendly way knocked the surfers about a bit and was a living legend in that area of the world in New Zealand.
The Dolphin called Moko was washed up and collected and put into a blue coffin bedecked with flowers and lots of mourners were present at the funeral of the Dolphin. In Maori tradition the Maori people will convey the spirit of the Dolphin to its place of rest in conditions to that of the Maori traditions.
I suppose it reminds me of the film A Fish Named Wanda - a fishy business - and I used to dine at a Japanese restaurant in America with a fish tank close by but I never met any Dolphins but have seen the Dolphin Parks online on the internet. However, we did have a Pub in Hampshire years ago known as The Dolphin . I wonder if its still there or perhaps like most of the pubs here it has been closed down forever .... thanks ITN!
