Crews Rescue 2 Dolphins On Cape Cod

Officials say two more dolphins were stranded on Cape Cod, but crews were able to rescue them.

Mike Booth, a spokesman for the International Fund for Animal Welfare, says the group received a call Saturday morning about three dolphins that were swimming inside Wellfleet Harbor. He says crews were able to remove two that had stranded by Saturday evening, while the third was last seen swimming.

Booth says the dolphins that were stranded are being evaluated to see if they're fit to be released.

He says the two bring the number of common dolphins beached on Cape Cod since Jan. 12 to 118.

Scientists are trying to figure out what's behind the strandings.
