Death overcomes rescued dolphin

Some sad news about that dolphin named Nimitz that was found stranded near Bob Hall Pier a couple of weeks ago. Experts at the Animal Rehabilitation Keep in Port Aransas said Nimitz passed away.

Due to his unhealthy condition, they were ordered by the Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network to euthanize the dolphin on Sunday. The 30-year-old dolphin was suffering from pneumonia. Caretakers said he lost a lot of weight, wasn't swimming on his own, and he didn't show signs of improvement.
