Dolphin found dead in River Lee

Monday, 10th September, 2018 10:14am


Sadly, a dolphin has been found dead in the River Lee this afternoon.

In an update on social media, Cork City Fire Brigade said that the Zoology Department in UCC was helping with the handling of the dolphin's remains. 



Forget about cats stuck up trees, a rescue by Cork City Fire Brigade went swimmingly well on Leeside last night. 

Crews from Anglesea Street were last night called to an animal in distress in the River Lee at around 11pm. 

A dolphin had gotten into difficulty at Wandesford Quay after it became trapped under branches. 

The fire fighters helped free the dolphin and it swam away to safety. 

As the Cork City Fire Brigade pointed out on social media: "No such thing as an ordinary day in this job!"
