Indy zoo’s baby dolphin dies; cause isn’t known

The Indianapolis Zoo’s newest dolphin, a male, died Thursday morning, one day shy of 3 weeks old.

A sad day for many, but certainly not a rare thing.

Nova, the birth mother, had already lost several newborn calves going back to 1993, when her first died just 15 mins after life.

Still, the death came as a shock to many fans and caretakers at the Indianapolis Zoo, which had trumpeted the June 3 birth and posted a video of the baby dolphin swimming with his mom on YouTube.

    This makes me very sad, I don’t like to see them in captivity, only wild. Stop this.
