Dolphin spotted swimming in flooded Louisiana neighborhood

News

A Louisiana family surveying the damage to their neighborhood after Hurricane Ida found a surprising new neighbor swimming in the floodwaters — a dolphin.

Amanda Huling said she first spotted the dolphin swimming in the floodwaters of her Slidell neighborhood Monday.

She said the dolphin was still swimming around the neighborhood Tuesday.

Huling said she has been in contact with a rescue group that is planning to attempt to relocate the dolphin if it doesn’t find its way out of the flooded neighborhood within the next few days.
