Cape Cod Times: Eight common dolphins were stranded early Friday evening along the coast of Cape Cod Bay, a frustrating turn of events after a long day for rescuers.
One animal was found dead in the early evening at Thumpertown Beach.
Another healthy dolphin was stranded on First Encounter Beach at about 5 p.m. and was expected to be released, said Brian Sharp, stranding coordinator for the Yarmouthport-based International Fund for Animal Welfare.
The other six were found alive along the coast between Kingsbury and Campground beaches, Sharp said at about 6 p.m. Friday.
