An intense rescue mission on Cape Cod Saturday as crews worked to get a stranded dolphin back into the wild.

The 10 foot, 340 pound dolphin was found on Seaview Beach in Osterville on Cape Cod. The International Fund for Animal Welfare was contacted and responded on the scene to asses the situation.

Brian Sharp, Stranding Coordinator at the International Fund for Animal Welfare, reported “the animal looked relatively healthy. We did a full health assessment. We decided we wanted to give the animal a shot.”

The International Fund for Animal Welfare workers brought the juvenile female Rissos dolphin to Scusset Beach in Sandwich to release her back to the ocean.

According to Sharp, Scusset Beach was the safest place to release the dolphin even with the strong surf from the remnants of Tropical Storm Andrea.

It is unclear whether the animal was stranded because of the storm, but experts hope that it adapts back to normal life quickly.
