Young Dolphin in Laguna Madre in Trouble

A year-old dolphin in the Laguna Madre near South Padre Island is entangled in fishing line. It's wrapped around his body and in his mouth. Rescue attempts are awaiting the arrival of large nets. Scarlet Colley, director of the Dolphin Research Center, is coodinating the rescue effort.

Scarlet called on the community to house rescue workers and to boaters to help in the rescue. She is keeping a close eye on the dolphin, and so far has located him everyday. Check http://www.spislandbreeze.com/ for up-to-date reports.

The dolphins is one of the tribe of approximately 150 dolphins that make their home in the Laguna Madre Bay.
