Two dead dolphins have washed up on Longboat Key in the past two days, according to Hayley Rutger, Mote Marine Laboratory public relations specialist.
The first incident involved a bottlenose dolphin that was found yesterday. The second incident occurred this morning when a rough-toothed dolphin was discovered. Mote’s Stranding Investigation Program responded to both incidents. Officials do not believe the deaths are weather-related, Rutger said.
To report a stranded dolphin, whale, manatee or sea turtle, call the Stranding Investigation Program’s 24-hour pager at 988-0212.
