A lone seal pup found itself in a tricky situation when it floated into shallow waters near a beach. Though it tried to swim away from the shore, the strong current inhibited its progress. Luckily, a group of dolphins swimming nearby arrived to help the young seal and gently nudged it in the right direction. The benevolent act, captured on film by Canadian nature channel Oasis HD, is just another example of the “mysterious altruistic behavior that dolphins are known to show to other animals,” the narrator explains in the video clip.
