Shalom All,

Along the Mediterranean coast of Israel a Short-beaked Common dolphin (Delphinus delphis)  in a pod of 35 individual. On that dolphin there is a plastic hoop stuck on him - attached a photo. I was wandering whether it can be removed without capture? Or there are other ways.

 Any suggestion would be appreciated

Thank you in advance.
