PHOTOS: MMA Fighter Cathal Pendred Saves Baby Dolphin



Irish welterweight Cathal Pendred is known as “The Punisher” in the MMA circuit. But to a baby dolphin on the west coast of Ireland, he’s known as a hero.

Pendred told Fox Sports:

I was at a wedding down the countryside on the west coast of Ireland on Saturday. The next day, myself and my girlfriend went for a walk on the beach which was tight beside the hotel we were staying in… We saw a big crowd of people down by the water and we walked down to see what was happening. We were told by the other people looking on that there was a baby dolphin that was quite injured and kept getting pushed back to shore by the waves. There was a man in the water trying to help the dolphin and I went in to help. The man told me he had been there for a while trying to push him back out but the dolphin kept getting washed back in. The man said he was now exhausted so I told him I would take over trying to help.

Your friends would be so into this, share it!

Eventually Pendred overcame the rocky coast and a brief moment of undertow to get the baby dolphin to safety.

Big guy, big heart.
