Update: Reported Death of More Dolphins

CapeCodToday: The Marine Mammal Rescue Team from the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is working to save another dolphin today (Monday) after a long week of beachings along the shores of Cape Cod Bay.

Earlier today, the IFAW team headed to Wellfleet where a lone stranded dolphin was reported. Unfortunately, the dolphin died shortly after being found this morning, according to IFAW Senior Program Advisor AJ Cady.

IFAW reports that a second dolphin was successfully guided out of the marsh at Rock Harbor in Orleans but remains close to shore. As of 4 p.m., IFAW reported that the second dolphin has died after stranding on a standbar off Crosby Beach in Brewster. The dolphin died as rescuers began to move it to a rescue trailer for emergency treatment.

This weekend, IFAW’s Marine Mammal Rescue Team, assisted by volunteers, surveyed Cape beaches in search of dolphins in jeopardy. No rescues were attempted until today.
