Seriously? A Fucking Dolphin in the Gowanus Canal?!

There’s nothing to ruin your day quite like hearing that a dolphin has become stuck in the Gowanus Canal of all fucking places (like hearing there’s a beached whale in the Rockaways? Ugh), but that’s exactly what happened on Friday—a 345-pound, seven-foot dolphin showed up in Brooklyn and then died after rescuers deemed it unlikely to survive even if it were rescued. “The fact the dolphin was alone and so far up the canal… gave more credence to the theory it was mortally injured already,” Gothamist “>reports. (A man got into the water to comfort the animal just before it died. Spread love—it’s the Brooklyn way.) This isn’t the first time a sea creature with no business in the Gowanus Canal has shown up there. Here’s a recent history of wildlife sightings. [photo]
