SAD: Dolphins found with traits of Alzheimers off coast

A BABY dolphin has been rescued from Marbella beach.

Biologists from the Aula del Mar in Malaga rescued the mammal from the shores in Marbella de la Fontanilla this morning.

The animal was extremely thin and was found full of parasites.

It has been transferred to the facilities of the Marine Species Recovery Center of Malaga (CREMA), where they will perform tests and treatments.

Divers from the Aquatic Unit of the Fire Department of Marbella participated in the rescue operation.

The 112 emergency number received several calls from locals yesterday warning of the existence of a dolphin that appeared ‘disoriented’ along the Marbella coast.
