A Deaf Dolphin Found At Louisiana Coast; Sent to A Facility for Recovery

On Friday, Suzanne Smith, the rescue coordinator at the Audubon Nature Institute disclosed the founding of a deaf 6-foot-6-inch dolphin at the Louisiana coast in the month of March, which is now being taken to a facility at Mississippi on Tuesday, where he would be able to recover and live comfortably.

This Institute for Marine Mammal Studies is in Gulfport and takes the best care of such mammals. This dolphin has been named Sassafrass and it was found abandoned in a couple of inches of water on a mudflat. As told by the team, he was appallingly sunburned and deaf in the regularities of dolphin sonar.

They further explained that it is generally after the age of two and a half when a dolphin gets separated from his or her mother. And in this case, it seems that once he would have reached this age, his mother might have left him independent into the waters due to which he went off in some wrong direction and lost his way and group. And since he is deaf he would have been unable to hear his friends calling him.

To make the dolphin recover soon, researchers have called upon the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. A Boat took him to the centre.
