Dead dolphin found on Ocean Springs beach

Posted: Updated:

A dolphin has been found dead on Front Beach in Ocean Springs. The dolphin appeared to be juvenile, and looked to have some sort of rope tied around the tail. IMMS Director, Dr. Moby Solangi, told WLOX he had been contacted about the dolphin, and a team was headed out to recover it.

The cause of death is not known at this time, but IMMS is expected to release a statement later today. So far this year, more than 30 dolphins have been found along the Mississippi Coast.

WLOX will continue to follow this story and bring you the very latest as details develop.
