How nice to read something so refreshing! This is a great read. Wish humans could be a bit more like these animals, as opposed to bullying those who are “different” or not like them.

Poor Dolphin for having the deformity, but at least he’s able to function, is loved & accepted regardless.

I’d adopt any animal that was “not up to par” so to speak; three legs, one eye, no ears, in a wheel-chair/special needs, etc. I’d take them in as they are no different on the inside & still contain a joyous soul.

What a great story =D

Why are you criticizing us? This animal was rejected from its OWN SPECIES. There are plenty of humans that adopt and accept differences, in case you haven't noticed.

calm down, she was just commenting........

The article said that because of the deformity, he/she couldn't swim as fast and couldn't keep up with it's own pod, he/she was not rejected.

So I guess there's no reason for you to be so blue anymore.

Thank you for the comment. Yes, there are plenty of humans
who do accept differences. I was simply referring to the humans that don’t. I
was merely making a comparison as humans are animals just the same.

 

My reality is perhaps darker than yours, & reality is
subjective.

 

I do appreciate the joke, ha-ha, clever play on words there;
sincerely made me chuckle. =D

What a beautiful example of love and acceptance.

Perhaps, but this happened under the water (where few of us dwell) so our ability to view same is "rare" and, by the way, it's heart-warming.

We can really learn a lot from animals....These whales showed Gods Love to another species different from its own! Imagine that! and didn't ask any questions, jumped in and helped where there was a need! :+)

And look at that. The whale didn't even need to believe in god to know what the right and loving thing to do was. Atheist whale just did it for the love of it....proving once and for all, Love is all you need. Atheist do it just for the love of it, no god necessary!!

The whale told you it was an Atheist? Interesting...

I once worked with a Atheist we talked open about what we believe in a respectful manner.I had notice when he was frustrated,aggravated,or even laughing at something funny he would often say "Oh my God" So one day I asked him, "why do you always call on my God when you don't believe in him?" "Why don't you say Oh my Atheist?"He laughed as I did... God made the animals it's in their DNA!!! :+) My Opinion/What I believe.

The kind of love that these animals show by instinct is the same kind of love Humans must Learn. But we refuse to take examples from nature thinking ourselves to be above it.

Another stupid/delusional comment. Humans do this all the time. Animals DO NOT, hence why this is news. x]

Everyone sees according to their limits. You see stupid comments. What can I tell you? The animals that do this don't have any calculations for self benefit in their actions. The act in this news story is truly altruistic. When humans do this kind of thing, at least in modern times, there's usually something to be gained by the provider for it. Respect/social recognition/money, or other benefit. Animals don't consider such things when rendering aid. That makes their actions nearly perfect. The only thing higher is achieving that degree consciously/willingly. Some say we will never reach such a degree. Those who believe this can't be blamed for their weakness.

Peace to you and yours.

OH YES ANIMALS DO. YOU NEED TO WATCH ANIMALPLANET MORE OFTEN, AND MORE ANIMAL SHOWS IN GENERAL.

I guess the millions of people who adopt children, dogs, cats, pigs etc. don't count?

aww that's so cute! See that, being different isn’t bad, and that conforming is completely overrated. Great things happen when we dare to be different :)
