COPY-Dead dolphin found in Indian River Lagoon

Associated Press - July 16, 2007 3:54 AM ET

MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) - Biologists say a dead dolphin found in the Indian River Lagoon was likely killed by the summer's heat. This is the third dead dolphin found in the area in the past two weeks.

A marine biologist with Hubbs SeaWorld Research Institute says one dolphin's body was found near Patrick Air Force Base and another was found near Rockledge. The body of a third dolphin was found at Pineda Landing yesterday.

The biologist says temperatures climb in the Indian River Lagoon because of the shallow water.
