Dolphin fatality

This Common Dolphin (note yellow/grayish hourglass on side) was discovered northside up east. I want to thank Jr Edwards for photo documenting and remind our Community to call Mystic Aquarium 860-572-5955 EXT 107. As part of North Atlantic Region Stranding Network; our Island’s first responders will be contacted either to assist in a live stranding or document a marine mammal fatality. This includes whales, dolphins, seals and sea turtles.
