Human chain helps dolphins escape from canal

Human chain helps dolphins escape from canal

Posted: Updated:

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Wildlife officials say about a dozen humans helped a dolphin pod escape from a Florida canal.

WTVT news reports that two adult dolphins and two calves had been swimming around in the St. Petersburg canal for several days by Tuesday morning, when a group of experts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Clearwater Marine Aquarium came to help.

The group formed a human chain, blocking part of the canal and forcing the dolphins back toward Tampa Bay.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokeswoman Michelle Kerr says the dolphins swam under an overpass to get into the canal and apparently were afraid to go near it again to escape.
