More dead dolphins have scientists looking for answers

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Another dead dolphin has been found on Mississippi coast shores. The dead mammal was found early Friday morning in Biloxi.

Institute of Marine Mammal Studies Director, Dr. Moby Solangi, told WLOX News that three other dolphins were found dead in Alabama yesterday.

With these recent deaths, more than 60 dead dolphins have now been found along the shores of Alabama and Mississippi.

Scientists are still trying to decide why the dolphins are dying, and if there is a link to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Dr. Solangi says it may take weeks, even months, before they determine the cause of death.
