A wayward dolphin that spent more than a week in a Southern California wetlands channel has made its way back to sea.
Marine mammal rescue specialist Peter Wallerstein says a volunteer watched the dolphin leave the Bolsa Chica wetlands and swim into adjacent Huntington Harbour on Friday. It hasn’t been seen since.
A day after it was spotted, the animal was coaxed toward the ocean but apparently became spooked by a pair of fellow dolphins and swam back into the channel.
However, Wallerstein says the dolphin has now left — and he thinks it will do just fine.
