More dead Jersey Shore dolphins as Memorial Day Weekend arrives

It’s happened again, Save Jerseyans, only a week before Memorial Day Weekend.


Four dolphins and a harbor porpoise have been found dead on or near beaches in New Jersey since Thursday, officials said Monday.

Adult male common dolphins were found stranded in Sea Isle City and Sea Bright on Sunday, the Marine Mammal Stranding Center said Monday. Both were removed and autopsies are pending.

In addition, a male calf bottlenose dolphin was spotted floating dead off Cape May on Sunday, the stranding center said. The dolphin’s carcass never washed ashore.
