Dolphins Are Dying At A Higher Than Normal Rate On The U.S. East Coast!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueR.I.P.Sad SadScary!DolphinsCrazzzzy


A higher than average rate of bottle nose dolphin carcasses are being found on beaches on the east coast of the United States, and scientists are unsure what caused their deaths.

So far 120 dead animals have been discovered since June!

In Virginia alone 87 carcasses have been found since early June. Compare those numbers to last year's record of about 50 dolphin deaths, and that is quite a jump!

Here's what one expert said:

"It's absolutely alarming. This is really frightening because these animals are sentinels of ocean health. Strandings have been much more common in the past few decades and we think it's an indication of the health of our ecosystem."

Necropsies will be performed on the animals, but findings in regards to their cause of death can take months to materialize.

We hope these deaths are just an anomaly, and aren't indicative of something much bigger going on under the sea!

So sad.
