PERU: Scientists Probe Another Mass Dolphin Die-off.


     Since January...almost 900 dead bottlenose dolphins have been counted on the beaches in the Piura and Lambayeque regions of northern Peru.  
     Now...scientists are trying to find out why they perished...many with broken bones and collapsed organs.
     Some blame a virus...while others believe it may be due to noise from seismic oil explorations.
     Mass dolphin die-offs have happened before...in the USA, Mexico and Peru.
