Another beached dolphin

A Risso's dolphin found on the Tower Road beach in Delaware State Seashore Park was being tended to by marine-rescue volunteers this afternoon.

Volunteers with the Marine Education, Research & Rehabilitation Institute, Inc., a marine animal rescue organization, set up beach umbrellas to shade the dolphin and poured water over it to keep it cool.

The dolphin was spotted after it left the water and beached itself. MERR volunteers said they hoped to temporarily place the animal in a pool
