It’s Dead Sea-Creature Day in New York City, Apparently

Following this morning’s sad, dead subway shark is a beat-up, deceased dolphin, which washed up today at Rockaway Beach with a rope tied around it. As DNAinfo reports, “As many as 21 [bottlenose dolphins] have washed up along Long Island beaches this year” — many more than usual — “most of them dead.” We’d suspect a local conspiracy, but it’s not just New York 

Click here, in case you haven’t seen enough dead animals today, for a heartbreaking photo of an Arctic polar bear experts believed starved to death, “having been reduced to little more than skin and bone.” NBC reports: “Experts fear polar bears will increasingly suffer a similar fate as global warming melts the sea ice that allows them to hunt for their main source of food.”

So, yeah, we can all probably share the blame.
