Beachgoers in Ventura, California beach were outraged as a dead dolphin was towed across the sand in front of them on this busy Fourth of July weekend.
The man who captured it all on video can be heard complaining about the way the situation was handled by officials, but the port’s harbormaster said it was the best way to deal with the fish.
California State Parks and the Harbor Patrol decided to use a pickup truck to tow the animal instead of loading it into the truck’s bed so that the vehicle would not need to be decontaminated and could remain in service for medical, emergency and law enforcement calls, Ventura Harbor Patrol Harbormaster John Higgins told KTLA on Monday.
