Watch For Dolphin insignia

The two British men accused of harassing Dave, a friendly dolphin often sighted off the coast of Kent, have been convicted by a British court. The two men reportedly swam with Dave early in the morning while returning home from an evening of drinking. They continued to swim with Dave even after authorities arrived and told tem to leave the water. Video of the incident shows Dave behaving aggressively toward the men, and showing signs of distress. Expert marine mammal witnesses testified that Dave was likely traumatized by the event. The two men were convicted of intentionally or recklessly disturbing a wild animal, and each were fined 350 pounds and sentenced to 120 hours of community service
