I managed to catch up with the Bottle-nosed Dolphin that made its way up the Raritan Bay to Old Bridge, NJ. It looks as if the BND is sick and is seeking refuge in the isolated waterways that have fish concentrations. None of that stopped the Baykeepers from harassing the animal in a misguided attempt to drive it back to the ocean. Maybe one day we will have enough understanding of animals to know when to intervene and when to leave well enough alone. I discussed this topic with many of the young people on the Bridge who came to see the spectacle for themselves. Hope this all turns out ok. Received and update and apparently the dolphin died on Saturday. RIP BND.
