Heavy Rains Help Free Stranded Dolphins

The recent wet weather helped free several stranded dolphins in South Mississippi.

For nearly two weeks, four dolphins were stranded in Mallini Bayou outside Pass Christian. Wednesday, a team from the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies searched the bayou by boat and couldn't find them.

The staff believes the large amount of rainfall raised the water level enough for the dolphins to swim out on their own.
