Another Dolphin Trapped in the LBC
A trapped dolphin was spotted in the Long Beach Harbor today. No, not the bullied dolphin who strayed from her pod in Bolsa Chica. This young dolphin appears to be trapped within a wharf construction zone.
The dolphin may have swam over a fence during high tide. Now it is unable to swim out from behind the metal walls of a Long Beach Port construction project, according to City News Service.
Divers are working to help set the dolphin free. Peter Wallerstein of Marine Animal Rescue told KCAL9 that welders are trying to open the walls in three areas so the animal can escape. If that doesn't work, the rescuers will be back in the morning to try something else.
As for the dolphin that hung out in the wetlands last week? Experts told the Los Angeles Times yesterday that they believe she swam back to sea.
