- [ENGLISH] A stranded dead bottlenose dolphin have been found in February on western Turkish Black Sea coast during regular coastal survey. There was a diagonal and shapely 14cm long wound on the middle lateral side of her body. When she was found, the intestines had come out completely from this wound. During necropsy also a hole was seen on her stomach. If anyone who has experienced a similar case, seen a similar wound on a marine mammal or have an idea about what the wound’s source could be, we would appreciate any exchange of views.
