Rare ‘Pink (Albino) Dolphin’ sighted in USA - Photos
December 2007. This extremely rare and beautiful ‘pink dolphin’ was first spotted and photographed by Captain Erik Rue of Calcasieu Charter Service on June 24th, 2007 during a fishing trip on Calcasieu Lake south of Lake Charles, Louisiana. Captain Rue has seen the albino dolphin several times, the latest being on November 17th, when it appeared to be in good health.
It appears to be an extremely rare albino dolphin, with reddish eyes and glossy pink skin. It is small in comparison to the others it is travelling with and appears to be a juvenile travelling with his/her mother. After spotting the beautiful mammal cruising with a pod of four other dolphins, Captain Rue and his guests idled nearby while watching and photographing the unusual sight for more than an hour.
Captain Rue expects that to see this amazing mammal again as it was in an area often frequented by bottlenose dolphins and one confirmed report has it being spotted at least a month earlier in a nearby location.
believe a little girl in 30 seconds but won’t believe the black man after 5 hours….lol ok.
Says a lot.
It really does. I think it’s wonderful that she told that truth however, this is a prime example of white privilege. At 4 years old, she actually had systematic power over the fate of a Black male. White privilege is a very real and impactful thing.
I know that this story is heartwarming in it’s own way. Yes, the 4 year old has more in the way of ethical fiber in her pinky than her babysitter has in her whole body. Yes, it’s case closed on a wrongfully accused case that could have had very serious consequences for the neighbor involved…
but there’s something really chilling about an otherwise law abiding citizen being arrested and questioned in handcuffs for 5 hours on the casual implication of a 17 year old.
