Recently there's been a good deal of "bad news" about how some human beings choose to horrifically torture other animals, for example wolves (see also and), for the fun of it. 

Now, we have a very special and uplifting story of humans working hard and risking injury to save stranded dolphins in the Braziliam town of Arraial do Cabo. A heart-warming video that accompanies this story can also be seen here.

I hope this wonderful rescue will help to maintain or restore your faith in the goodness and decency of humans who truly care about the well-being of other animals.
