Southern right whale dolphin was found in Cannon Beach

An unusual discovery was made in Cannon Beach on Saturday.

Greenpeace Scientists say it's rare to see a southern right whale dolphin so far north. The dolphin was found washed up in Cannon Beach.

Crews with the Oregon Marine Mammal Stranding Network recovered the body of a Wright Whale Dolphin in South Cannon Beach.

Keith Chandler with the Stranding Network said they have never seen a Wright Whale Dolphin this far north.

That particular dolphin usually exists off the coast of Southern California and researchers aren’t sure how it ended up this far north.
