Scientists Probe for Link Between Seal and Dolphin Deaths

CapeCodOnline: Whether they got lost, sick or swam astray chasing food, 77 dolphins that beached on Cape Cod in recent weeks have died, the second time in three months New England has seen a mass of marine mammal deaths.
Now, scientists are trying to figure out why.
They’re also researching whether there’s any connection to a die-off this fall of 162 harbor seals, whose carcasses were found between northern Massachusetts and Maine.
