Dolphins still sought along Cape Cod Bay coastline


WELLFLEET — Marine mammal rescuers continued to scout the coastline of Cape Cod Bay on Friday for additional live or dead common dolphins in what has been the largest mass-stranding event in at least 10 years.
Since Jan. 12, International Fund for Animal Welfare staff members and volunteers have identified 160 short-beaked common dolphins as stranded, organization spokesman Michael Booth said Friday. Of those, 103 have been found dead, 17 have died or been euthanized after being found alive, and 40 have been released to deep waters.
In recent days the strandings have extended farther westward to Barnstable and have continued as far east as Wellfleet.
