Researchers: BP oil spill may have contributed to Gulf of Mexico dolphin deaths

"Five of the more than 500 dolphins that have washed ashore dead along the Gulf Coast from Florida to Texas over the past two years died from a bacterial infection called Brucella, federal scientists announced Thursday."

More dolphins found: 3 washed up Friday; 14 total dead in October, which is 'not normal'
"There was a time when one dolphin death was an unusual event. But dolphins dying consistently, month after month, is something that has continued in the northern Gulf since the BP oil spill."
