Laguna Beach Lifeguards and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are investigating whether Gary Golding, host of The Discovery Channel’s “Naked and Afraid: Alone,” violated the Marine Mammal Protection Act when he ate a dead baby dolphin at Aliso Beach.
“We’re looking into the details of this incident,” said Laguna Beach Lifeguard Capt. Kai Bond. “We are in a Marine Protected Area and he may have violated the Marine Mammal Protection Act.”
Bond said his department became aware of the incident after the celebrity news website TMZ published a story Sunday, Jan. 12, a day after the airing of the “Naked and Afraid” episode in which Golding eats the dolphin.
