CAMERON PARISH, La. — Wildlife officials rescued a dolphin found stranded in a Louisiana pond 9 miles inland most likely because of a storm surge caused by Hurricane Laura.
The female bottlenose dolphin was found Sept. 9, according to the Audubon Nature Institute. Once she was evaluated and deemed releasable, she was taken to the Gulf of Mexico.
“This was a multiday and multi-organizational effort to rescue, transport and release this bottlenose dolphin,” said Gabriella Harlamert, Audubon Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Stranding, Rescue and Rehab coordinator.
