A week ago, it was reported that a dolphin washed up on Brooklyn’s Coney Island beach. The animal was already dead and was “giving off a very strong smell,” a witness told the Brooklyn Paper.
In June, a 600-pound dolphin was rescued off Jones Beach and was taken to the Long Island Aquarium, reported MyFoxNY.com.
