Dolphins spotted swimming in Navesink River

Four dolphins have been spotted swimming in the Navesink River.  The Star Ledger reports that the dolphins, which were first spotted last week, appeared in the river over the weekend and then again Tuesday, when they were seen in waters west of the Oceanic Bridge connecting Rumson and Middletown, the report said.  The National Marine Fisheries Service said they will not let citizens drive the dolphins back out to sea, despite concerns that their fate may be similar to another pack who entered the river in 2008 and saw much of their population die by October.
