FOUR dolphins have died in a holiday hotspot asking thousands of pounds for therapy sessions.
It has prompted animal rights activists to call for a criminal investigation into the deaths at the site popular with British visitors.
Splash, 21, was the latest dolphin to die at Onmega Dolphin Therapy and Activity Center in Marmaris, Turkey, in July.
Flip, 37, pregnant Frosya, 32, and a 15-day-old infant have also died since June last year.
Bottle noses have a lifespan of 40 to 60 years.
Tracey Özdemir of British group Media On Taiji Ocean Defenders said her lawyer reported it to prosecutors.
She said: “We need answers.
“A whistleblower informed us about the problems in the park.”
It is believed that there are three other dolphins in the center.
It offers a range of packages including a two-week therapy course for £3,329.
His suggestion that conditions like autism could be treated by swimming with dolphins has been criticized for the lack of science behind it.
The center said: “We’ve been here for 15 years and now people want to close us.
“The dolphins got sick.
“We’re trying to find out what happened.”
