Watch This Wounded Dolphin Ask A Diver For Help. This Is The Best Thing You’ll See All Day

There is more and more evidence these days that animals are capable of far more intelligence, empathy and communication with us than we ever thought possible. Dolphins are a famously intelligent species and in this amazing underwater footage, an injured bottlenose dolphin appears to ‘ask’ a diver for help to remove a fishing hook and line from it’s left pectoral fin so it can swim freely again.

This stunning behaviour leads you to wonder – how did the dolphin know the human is capable of removing the problem he was having? Are wild dolphins really smart enough to collaborate with humans in this manner, rather than just try to free itself with a rock maybe and know he might get nowhere?
