12 dead dolphins wash ashore in Constanta

Five dead dolphins washed ashore on the beaches of the Mamaia and Eforie resorts on Friday. The dolphins lost their lives by becoming entangled in fishing nets. According to Mediafax, another seven dead dolphins washed ashore on Saturday morning. “All 12 dolphins were of the Phocoena Phocoena Relicta specie. Three females and two males died in a period of time that ranged from two months to one day before their bodies washed ashore. In two cases the cause of death was drowning, the dolphins having become entangled in fishing nets. The baby dolphin died of ex­haustion and hunger after his mother died. It seems two other dolphins were the victims of explosions that probably took place during military exercises,” bio­logist Razvan Popescu Mirceni, coordinating director of the ‘Oceanic Club,’ stated.
