Dolphin in Wando River (Bill Roettger)

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - You've got to love Lowcountry living!

Bill Roettger was fishing with his grandson in the Wando River Sunday, when the two had a neat encounter with a dolphin.

The creature came right up to the side of Roettger's boat, and showed off for Roettger and his adoring grandson.

Editor's note: We shared this video with the best of intentions, but after hearing from many concerned readers and viewers, we spoke to marine wildlife experts with NOAA and the South Carolina Aquarium about the video. Based on those conversations, it's clear some of the things shown in the video aren't OK. We've written a new article outlining some of the problematic behaviors shown, and how you can protect wild dolphins from potentially dangerous interactions with humans.
