Dead dolphin found on Deer Island

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Another dead dolphin has been spotted in South Mississippi. A WLOX viewer sent us pictures of the animal Monday morning.

Jon Higginbotham said he and a friend came across the dolphin Sunday evening on Deer Island while out on the water. Higginbotham reported it to the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies in Gulfport.

Executive Director for IMMS, Dr. Moby Solangi tells WLOX News they did receive that report. He said IMMS plans to send a crew out Monday afternoon to collect samples from the dolphin.

Dr. Solangi said this isn't the first dead dolphin spotted this year. He says just last week, his team was alerted of another dead mammal in Biloxi's Back Bay
