Dolphin found shot to death on California beach

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (WSVN) — An animal rescue group is offering a $5,000 reward after a dolphin was found shot to death in southern California.

Marine Animal Rescue shared a photo of the creature that was left lying on the shore of Manhattan Beach, just south of Los Angeles.

Upon examining the dolphin, a doctor discovered the dolphin was killed from a gunshot.

“There is NO excuse for such brutality against these beautiful animals,” the organization wrote in the post.

Marine Animal Rescue is now offering a $5,000 reward for the information leading to the conviction of the dolphin’s killer.
