Fukui’s fire department has also recorded two incidents involving men in their 40s. Though the injuries are minor, local authorities have warned of “potentially severe wounds”.

Fukui prefectural police took to Twitter and tweeted,

“Dolphins tend to be considered cute, but if you approach wild dolphins carelessly, you might get bitten and injured. If you spot any, don’t go near them.”

An official from the tourism promotion department said, “We understand that there are certain body parts where dolphins don’t like to be touched, like the tip of its nose and its back fin”.

He also said videos posted on Twitter showed beachgoers had been trying to touch the dolphin in those areas, and that they encourage visitors to watch the dolphin from afar and not go near it.

As per local people, the series of attacks are the work of a single dolphin. The dolphin was first spotted near shore at a different beach in April, Masaki Yasui.
