Rescued Dolphin Dies - South Texas, Corpus Christi, Coastal Bend

UPDATE: Rescued Dolphin Dies

Posted: Updated:

We have a sad update about the stranded bottlenose dolphin found in the surf near San Jose Island. The eight-foot long, five-hundred pound creature was found just a few days ago during this latest cold snap.

A crew brought him to the Sea-Lab at The Texas State Aquarium for around the clock care.

Despite the efforts to save it, Sunday we learned the dolphin did not survive. A necropsy will be performed to find out the exact cause of death.
