The dolphin deaths are the latest in a series of mass animal deaths from around the world
Dozens of dead baby dolphins have mysteriously washed ashore in Alabama and Mississippi in the latest mass animal deaths.
Twenty-eight corpses have been found so far - ten times the usual number.
The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies is investigating the cause of the tragedy.
Scientists at the institute are carrying out tests on the marine mammals in attempt to find the cause of their deaths.
Reports say it is too early to tell if there is a connection between the deaths and last year's BP oil spill, which happened during the dolphin's breeding season.
Hopefully science will find an answer to the bizarre mass deaths soon.
