4 stranded dolphins released in Cape Cod, 1 dead

Posted: Updated:

PROVINCETOWN, Mass. (AP) - Marine wildlife rescuers say they have released four common male dolphins beached at the tip of Cape Cod in Provincetown.

One dolphin was already dead when rescuers arrived on the scene Thursday morning.

Brian Sharp, stranding coordinator for the International Fund for Animal Welfare, says his team successfully released the surviving dolphins at Herring Cove, three miles from where they were discovered.

The dolphins were found on the flats off the intersection of Snail Road and Route 6A near the Harbor Hotel.

Sharp says the team ran multiple tests on the surviving dolphins and they are healthy.

He says because of the unique landscape and tidal changes the area is a hotspot for marine strandings, and his team responds to several every year.
