Dolphin Killed Minutes Before Show

Dolphin

So sad!

Minutes before a show on Monday at the Brookfield Zoo in Illinois, a female dolphin, Nea, collided with another dolphin and died!

According to the Chicago Zoological society, she died from a fractured skull.

No one witnessed the incident but trainers heard a loud pop and quickly rushed in to help. After performing CPR until veterinary staff arrived the dolphin was found to be unresponsive.

The other dolphin is fine.

Ever since arriving at the Brookfield Zoo a year ago, Nea had integrated very well with the other dolphins, so it looks like that rules out any “fishy” business in the death of Nea the dolphin.
