The dolphin, who was suffering from an undetermined illness, washed up on Quintana Beach on Tuesday, only to be pushed back into the ocean by a group of people who then attempted to ride it.

When the dolphin made its way back onto the beach, another group of people harassed it, according to the Texas Marine Stranding Network.

Unfortunately, the dolphin was dead by the time animal experts arrived.

The people who harassed it, which is a crime, have not been apprehended, officials say.
