Rescuers responded on Tuesday to another mass dolphin stranding off Cape Cod.

Michael Boothe, of the International Fund for Animal Welfare, said 11 dolphins beached themselves in a muddy area of Wellfleet Tuesday morning, just as the tide began to rise.

"They did find the dolphins in a very remote and inaccessible area almost a mile from land," Boothe said. "It's really deep inside Wellfleet Harbor. It's a common place for dolphins to strand themselves."

One dolphin died, but rescuers say they're optimistic they can save the other 10.

A total of 177 dolphins have been stranded off the Cape in the past month.
