From the New York Daily News (http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/brooklyn/2010/03/04/2010-03-04_dolphin_up_a_polluted_city_creek.html)...


A dolphin was spotted Wednesday in Brooklyn's notoriously polluted Newtown Creek.

"We were just amazed," said Roy Arezzo, one of two teachers from the Urban Assembly New York Harbor School who saw the 7-foot dolphin swimming deeper into the filthy water.

"We just stood there in awe - shouting, telling it to go back the other way. ... This is a once-in-a-lifetime sighting."

The creature may have come upstream from a spot near the Brooklyn Navy Yard where fireboat captain Bill Hannan spotted two dolphins Tuesday.

"It's heartbreaking to see such a beautiful creature in such terribly polluted water," said John Lipscomb, a patrol boat captain for environmental group Riverkeeper, who said the dolphin was likely sick and disoriented.

"We hope it finds its way back to sea," he said.

Rob DiGiovanni, director of the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation, said the group would monitor sightings of the dolphin and could mount a rescue mission if there were signs it's in distress.

I thought dolphins were all smart and shit. This one didn't even understand plain English! Fucking dumb-ass dolphin...
