Our Trash ends life of Baby Dolphin

BIOLOGISTS FIND TRASH IN BELLY OF STRANDED BABY DOLPHIN.FORT MYERS BEACH, FLA. » A rare deep-water dolphin stranded on a Florida beach and later euthanized had a stomach full of trash.

Biologists said they found two plastic bags and a shredded balloon during a necropsy of the young rough-toothed dolphin after it washed ashore in Fort Myers Beach last week.

Animal experts said the rough-toothed dolphin was emaciated and in poor health. Biologists and bystanders worked to help the struggling animal, but wildlife officials decided to euthanize the dolphin on-site.
