Dolphin Escapes Pen, Rejoins Former Family From Years Ago!

| Filed under: RescueDolphinsAmazing

This is so incredible!!

A dolphin named Sampal was originally caught by fishermen off Jeju Island, near South Korea.

She was then illegally sold to the Pacific Land Aquarium. There, she was forced to constantly perform tricks for food.

Ric O'Barry, a long time fighter for the rights of sea creatures and director of Earth Island Institute's Dolphin Project convinced the aquarium to give up their dolphins!

So the dolphins were released into a temporary sea pen for rehabilitation.

But Sampal couldn't wait! She escaped the pen and returned to the ocean!

Best part?? She was later spotted swimming with the same pod of dolphins she was stolen from four years earlier!!

She got back home!! That's amazingballs!!

Check out the video (above) to see some of the other dolphins in their sea pen.
