An animal rescue group says a dolphin was found shot to death in Manhattan Beach, California. 

Marine Animal Rescue is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the conviction of the person who shot the dolphin.

A veterinarian was able to retrieve the bullet that killed the dolphin. A necropsy revealed the dolphin had died from a gunshot wound.

“It’s just a vicious act of brutality,” Peter Wallerstein, founder and president of the rescue group, said.

“They’ll do the best they can,” Wallerstein said. “They have the bullet and they have evidence of the shooting. We very rarely find these people but what the reward does is put them on notice.”

Marine Animal Rescue can be reached at (800) 399-4253 or (310) 455-2729.
