Beware, Dusty the Dolphin is a bit of a bully


Read Irish Central via Arbroath

Swimmers have been warned to stay away from a dolphin in County Clare after the animal injured another bather.

The dolphin, known as Dusty by locals, has been involved in four such incidents in the past month in Doolin harbour.

Authorities have repeatedly issued warnings not to swim with the female bottlenose dolphin.

Dusty charged a woman as she left the water on Sunday night with some reports claiming she suffered back injuries.

The Irish Times says the dolphin is believed to have struck the woman in the kidney area with its nose, knocking her over and leaving her winded.
