The government says that 35 stranded dolphins have been verified in the oil-spill area. Of these, 33 dolphins were stranded dead and two stranded alive. One died on the beach and another in Florida was later euthanized. So far, two of the 35 stranded dolphins had evidence of external oil, but it's unknown whether or not the oil caused their deaths.
