PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) - A dolphin was found in a Portsmouth creek Saturday morning. The dolphin was alive, but it had to be euthanized by biologists.
WAVY cameras were there as members of the Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response team worked at Scott's Creek, near downtown. Despite their best efforts, the dolphin was too sick and had to be put down.
It’s one of the almost 200 dolphins to wash up along Virginia shores since July. Scientists are starting to get overwhelmed by the numbers.
If you see a marine animal on the beach, alive or dead, do not touch it. Scientists suspect whatever is killing them could be passed along to humans or pets. Call the Virginia Aquarium Stranding Team at 385-7575.
Norfolk Police are investigating the cause of death for male found unconscious on the beach.
