Individuals in a remote Newfoundland town free a pod of ice-bound dolphins. This is a such a terrific story: The legendary Newfie hospitality extends even to other orders of mammals.

A group of local men braved dangerous broken ice and frigid waters in a fibreglass speedboat to rescue a pod of dolphins and help them back to open water, the mayor of Seal Cove, N.L., said Thursday.

“We didn’t get any response from (the Department of Fisheries and Oceans). It takes so long to get things done when you go through government departments,” said Mayor Winston May. “So, some local guys decided to put out their small speedboat and put on their survival suits, and didn’t they put a channel through the water to where the dolphins was at.”
