Sexually Frustrated Dolphin Closes Beach in France

Oh my...

Well these things happen! And it seems it can happen to Dolphins as well.

"A sexually frustrated dolphin has closed down a beach in western France. Zafar's behavior got so bad that the mayor of one of the bayside towns, Landévennec, issued a bylaw banning swimming and diving whenever Zafar's presence is confirmed, according to the BBC. Getting within 50 meters (164 feet) of the dolphin was also banned." (...) "The 3-meter-long (10 feet) bottlenose dolphin, nicknamed Zafar by locals, started off as a friendly attraction in the Bay of Brest, according to The Telegraph. The bay had become the dolphin's hangout of choice for the last couple of months, and he would often amuse people on boats by playing around them and would sometimes even let swimmers hold on to his fin and swim with him. But lately, Zafar has been caught misbehaving. The dolphin has developed a habit of rubbing up against both people and boats, a sign that he may be in search of, well, sex. He also lifted one woman into the air with his nose, and, in another case, refused to let a swimmer go back to shore, according to the BBC." (Source)​

There's a few extra jokes I could throw in considering this is in France... but that's probably enough! :cool:

It has happened in other places where people can swim with the dolphins. Definitely not fun for people.

I would say that there's [ahem...] something fishy about this story??
