The number of dolphins found dead in the Mid-Atlantic region hit nearly 50 in the month of July. That number equals seven times the normal rate.

The Huff Post reports:

Bottlenose dolphins, intelligent and charismatic mammals loved by the public, are dying at abnormally high rates this summer from New York to Virginia — 156 animals from July 1 through Monday. The average for a full year in that region is 99.

Most of the dolphins washed up dead. Some died soon after being found or were so near death they had to be euthanized. None has survived to be returned to the wild.
