More than 100 dolphins have stranded themselves along Cape Cod's 25-mile coastline in the last three weeks, and the number is growing.
Rescuers there say it's just about the worst they've ever seen. And scientists are still looking for answers.
The alarming number of dolphins beaching themselves along the 25-mile Cape Cod coastline was baffling scientists for a third week.
On Monday, they responded to a call that three dolphins were approaching shore. Two swam away unharmed, but one got too close to the beach and needed intervention by rescuers from the International Fund for Animal Welfare.
The animal later died and, along with three more carcasses discovered over the weekend, the number of dolphin beachings swelled to 102, nearly the normal amount for an entire year.
Katie Moore, manager of the Marine Mammal Rescue Team, says she simply doesn't know why this is happening.
