Mystery! At Least 260 Dead Dolphins Wash Up In Peru | Care2 Causes

At least 260 dead dolphins have washed up over the past week on a 66-mile stretch of coastline 500 miles north of Lima, Peru, but no one knows why. Local fishermen have been doubly surprised, since these mammals are not usually seen in these seas. You can click here to see a video of this tragic event, but be warned that some of the images are disturbing. Officials are not sure how the mammals died, but they have not ruled out the possibility they may have been hunted. Another possible explanation is that the dolphins were poisoned by eating contaminated anchovies: numerous dead anchovies have also been found. The Peruvian Sea Institute has taken samples to study in a laboratory, to research this mystery. Whatever the reason, the idea of so many beautiful dolphins lying dead on a beach is heartbreaking.
