      It's a deserted island? Free of any civilization? In the background @ 0:48 we can clearly see 2 people cutting a tree, setting up a *bonfire* 🤣😂🤣😂

    More likely she walked there during an irregularly low tide that connected that island to another land mass via land bridge. Then when the tide rose again she was stuck. That being said, Negrita is Brazilian Portuguese for "little black girl."

    This can represent the sides of humanity.
    The 1st side of humanity is David and others who cares for the animal.
    The 2nd side of humanity is the passengers who wanted to get rid of the dog on their own.
    I despise the 2nd side.

    What a great man you are. On the face of those ignorants that wanted her off the boat, (should have gone lost them selfs, as clearly are useless) and on the face of who left this sweetheart in the island... only a great man as you could have done a great action as such. All the best.

    I'm not fond of dogs but this was absolutely horrifying. It was double scandalous in first place of the people who just left that dog and second of trying to dump it again. Before that captain lets people on his cruise boat again he better first check if they have a heart in their chest.
