The dolphins didn't scratch the jet-skis' paintwork by any chance?

Patong Police were called to the beach a little later to settle a dispute between the dolphins and the jet ski owners for damage done to the jet skis in the herding. The dolphins claims of pre-existing damages fell on deaf ears since no dolphin translators were immediately available. They later agreed to pay an undisclosed amount of fish before being released back into deeper waters.

The dolphins twittered they came to warn about the sinking of Phuket, but people did not listen.

I'm surprised the dolphins didn't die in the Patong Beach water.

Good to see the sense of humor in the comments.

poppops was it the jetski boys? If so they certainly deserve the credit after all the bad publicity they have been getting. The story just said jet-ski riders so I just presumed they was hirers.

doubtful anything to do with good hearted jet ski hirers more like all the dolphin watchers and boat sightseers

It's odd that some readers can't take on board the fact that (a) not all jet-ski operators are scamsters and (b) that even scamsters can be animal-lovers and environmentalists.
