DEAD--ABORTED or STILLBORN DOLPHINS WASHING ASHORE! Scientist concerned by high number of baby dolphin deaths
***IMPORTANT NOTE: I am posting this article because I want the world to know what is happening here...at first I said I could not post the pictures, that readers can find them on their own, but a visual impact is needed to shock people from their apathy to a concern for LIFE here, and to hold the perpetrators of this crime responsible. I have been crying all morning...we need some help down here!!! PLEASE!!! My concern is not only for the animals, but the human impact as well. We have tourist season going on here in this part of Florida and elsewhere in the Gulf and people are swimming and hanging out at the beaches all around the Gulf Region. Why have there been no warnings or health hazard notices been issued? Why have our leaders allowed this? People are sick and dying as well. What will happen to pregnant women here?
