Firefighters try to guide dolphin out of river

A Captain with the New Brunswick Fire Dept. said they had their boats in the water and they were attempting to coax the Dolphin to swim in the opposite direction, but the Dolphin kept swimming up river. They had to call off their efforts because thunderstorms were moving into the area.

Officials lost site of the Dolphin and they are fearful the animal will become stranded in shallow water when low tide arrives. If anyone spots the Dolphin, they should call 9-1-1. New Brunswick is about 12 miles up river from the inlet in Perth Amboy. As far as the Captain knows, no one can recall a Dolphin making it this far up river.
