A social media campaign has begun after The body of a dolphin has been found near student accommodation in Cork.

News broke a few days ago in Cork of a dolphin carcass being found near an apartment complex. Pictures have also emerged on snapchat, and now facebook, of the dolphin being thrown around by students in an apartment.

The carcass was seen in the Parchment Square area of Cork city which is in the west of the city. Pictures also appeared on social media, with people sharing the horrifying images.

The body was believed to have been brought to the area by two young men, and showcased at a local house party. The two men, who are not believed to be students themselves, brought the carcass to the student party from the west Cork area.

The dolphin was believed to have been dead long before being brought to the city and was noticed by employees of the apartment complex following it being thrown from a window. The staff of the complex disposed of the carcass.

It is not known how this animal may have died, how the two men got it in their possession.

People have begun to share the images on social media to try and find the culprits of the crime.

It has been confirmed by the Cork Institute of Technology that the complex is an independently run place, although they say they are monitoring the situation closely.

If anyone has any information regarding the incident they are urged to contact a Cork city Garda station.
