Rescuers free 8 dolphins stranded in New York

More distressed creatures remain stuck in Long Island cove


Updated: 2 hours, 40 minutes ago

NEW YORK - Rescuers guided eight distressed dolphins back into open water on Tuesday, a week after several of the animals became stranded in a shallow cove off Long Island, New York.

About 20 common dolphins wandered into the cove-like Northwest Creek near East Hampton, New York, last week, said Chuck Bowman, president of the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation, who has been involved in the rescue efforts.

Above-average winter temperatures in the Northeast United States have caused some marine life, including dolphins, to linger closer to the shore than usual, Bowman said.

"Normally (the dolphins) would be far offshore feeding on Atlantic herring and mackerel," he said. "But we believe because of the warmer weather and temperatures the fish moved closer to the shore and the dolphins followed," he said.
Possibly, if the warmer weather in the Northeast is caused by global warming.
