(CNN)–A rare La Plata dolphin died earlier this month after a group of beach-goers apparently took it out of the ocean, then surrounded and handled it, according to Vida Silvestre, a wildlife foundation in Argentina.

Sky News obtained video of a person removing a dolphin from the water in Santa Teresita, a coastal town about 350 kilometers southeast of Buenos Aires, and beachgoers took photos of a dolphin that appears to have been left to die in the sand.

It is unclear why the dolphin was initially removed from the water.
