Dolphin got stranded and died in the Karin Sea, near Zadar.
On Thursday, about 2 P.M., a dead dolphin was found stranded on the beach in Donji Karin, reports 24sata on August 24, 2017.
The locals suspect that it might be Bobi, a dolphin that has been visiting and entertaining bathers of Karin Sea for years.”It probably got stranded because of the strong tides, and later died”, the reader said, adding that they wanted to push him deeper into the sea hoping that he was still alive, but the locals said that they should wait for the police to come.
The Zadar Police confirmed that they found the dead dolphin and added that they have contacted the Oceanographic Institute and the veterinarians.
In case you see a dolphin that is stranded, first called the local authorities and organisations (contact details here). In the meantime make sure you regularly pour water over it, especially if it’s exposed directly to the sun. If nobody answers your call, try to push the dolphin back into the water slowly and carefully.
