Photographs have emerged of party-goers dancing with a dead dolphin at a student accommodation complex in Cork.
According to the Independent.ie there is also aware of a video which shows the dolphin being thrown out a window of the apartment.
It is understood the dead mammal was brought into the complex to a party on Wednesday night.
Photographs have emerged of the dolphin lying on its side next to a wall, with others showing two young males dancing with the carcass in the kitchen area of an apartment.
One young man is holding the dolphin over his shoulder, while the other young man can be seen photographing the incident on his phone.
The images appeared on the social media app Snapchat, where photos only appear for a maximum of 24 hours.
The incident occurred at the Parchment Square Student Accommodation complex on the Model Farm Road, Cork.
The accommodation is the closest complex to CIT and each apartment can house up to five people.
It is understood the two young men involved in the incident are not students at CIT.
A source told Independent.ie the two young men travelled from west Cork to the party near the CIT campus, and brought the dolphin's carcass into the student accommodation complex. It is not known how they came to be in possession of the carcass.
An employee at the complex discovered the carcass on the grass outside one of the apartments the morning after the party. Following instruction, the mammal was wrapped and disposed of safely.
On the line today to talk about this incident is CIT Students’ Union President Shane Falvey and ARAN animal rights activist John Carmody.
