Dolphin Gave Gift of Fish to Humans

A family in canoes were watching a dolphin play in the waters off Combe Martin, Devon, UK. Lucy Watkins grandparents took her out on the sea because she loves dolphins and had never seen one in the wild. One dolphin splashed and played about the boats for a couple of hours, as if he wanted to be friends.  

But to their astonishment the friendly animal then dived down and dropped a massive cod next to Lucy Watkins, 14.

The dolphin then resurfaced and began nudging the whopping 10lbs fish towards the stunned teenager.

Lucy and her grandparents wondered whether they should pick up the floating offering in case the dolphin wanted it for himself.

But the dolphin then resurfaced seconds later with his own fish - this time a seabass – and began tucking in.

The family gratefully scooped up the cod, which weighed a massive 10lbs, before taking it home to nearby Combe Martin in Devon to cook for their tea.

I wonder if there are licensing issues with accepting a gift fish from a dolphin. Is it a game and fish violation, or does the onus fall to the dolphin?
