    A veterinarian ruled a dolphin found dead in Manhattan Beach died of a bullet wound, and now there's a reward to catch the person responsible. Published Nov. 16, 2018. (Published Friday, Nov. 16, 2018)

    A nonprofit rescue organization was offering a $5,000 reward Friday for information leading to the person who fatally shot a dolphin that was found washed up on Manhattan Beach.

    Marine Animal Rescue said the dolphin was found last week.

    When it was recovered, rescue officials discovered that the dolphin had died from a gunshot wound.

    "There is NO excuse for such brutality against these beautiful animals,'' according to a statement posted on the organization's Facebook page.

    The group is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the conviction of the person who shot the dolphin. The group can be reached at (800) 399-4253 or (310) 455-2729.
