Ahmedabad: A dolphin stuck in backwaters of sea towards Tapi River in Gujarat was found dead on Sunday, officials said.
It had drifted from the shoal of dolphins spotted in the river a few days ago, they said. "Yesterday, a dolphin was found stranded in backwaters of the sea towards river....its carcass was found today," Principal Chief Conservator of Forest CN Pandey told PTI.
He said the authorities had tried hard to ensure that it goes back to sea. "But, sometimes these large fish tend to deviate and drop in shallow waters when sea recedes, and finds it difficult to go back," Pandey said.
