A couple have faced backlash after photos of them posing with a beached dolphin have appeared online.

The photos have been deemed offensive, as one of them features a woman straddling a dolphin, while the man dangles the dolphin by the tail in another.

According to a report on the Daily Mail, people are now calling for the Peruvian pair to be prosecuted for what’s being called the ‘Lima Dolphin Incident.’

The pictures are accompanied online by the message: ‘Keep reposting until we can ID these idiots who killed this poor dolphin.

It is thought the photographs were originally posted on their Facebook pages before being shared by hundreds of thousands of people.

It is not known whether the dolphin survived or whether any action followed by local authorities.
