GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say a dolphin's head has washed up on Horn Island and a whole dead dolphin at Gulfport.
The director of the Institute of Marine Mammal Studies in Gulfport tells The Sun Herald that experts will examine both on Monday.
He says both were adults, and had been dead a few days.
He could not say whether the deaths are related to those of dolphins found shot, stabbed and mutilated last month in Jackson and Harrison Counties. The institute and Animal Legal Defense Fund are offering $5,000 rewards for information about anyone involved in those incidents.
Bird surveyors found the head Friday on Horn Island. The body was found Saturday on the beach.
