Look out for Fortune the dolphin

Submitted by GSPCA on 15:46, 13th Feb, 2014 | 0

Yesterday the GSPCA were called as residents of Beaucette Marina were concerned about Fortune the dolphin.

The GSPCA immediately sent a rescue you team with the vet John Knight.

The team monitored Fortune who was swimming around and as the team prepared to launch a boat Fortune was last seen.

With gale force winds and the dark of night the rescue team in their wet suits spent most of the evening looking for Fortune.

The GSPCA have been up through the night and today and as yet Fortune has not been seen but we are still hopeful that Fortune is alive.

Dolphin rescue at Pembroke Bay

Submitted by GSPCA on 17:58, 5th Feb, 2014 | 0

Today the GSPCA were called out to rescue a dolphin stranded on Pembroke Bay that was rolling in the surf.

Geoff George Animal Collection Officer responded to the call that came in at midday and we quickly contacted local vet John Knight who has many years working with dolphins and similar species around the world to attend the scene.

The Common Dolphin was extremely tired and there was no way that the animal could be re-floated with the rough gale force weather.
