Dead dolphins brought to British government
"Two dead dolphins have been delivered to government offices in the heart of London in a bid to highlight the threat to the creatures from fishing trawlers. Greenpeace staged the stunt to coincide with a legal challenge they hope will prompt a ban on pair trawling... both the dolphins, which were encased in ice, showed signs they had been caught in nets such as torn flippers and broken beaks... 'These dolphins on their doorstep represent only the tip of the iceberg - thousands of dolphins die each year around the UK.' ... The Greenpeace spokesman said the dead dolphins had been pulled out of the English Channel off the south-west coast by a Greenpeace boat."
