CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. -- New photos from Lemon Bay show a heartbreaking loss of marine life, including a dolphin.

Keleigh Callier of Englewood posted these photos to Facebook on Thursday.  They were taken near Stump Pass.

She says marine patrol units were taking the dolphin out to investigate the cause of death.  They told it likely was not due to a collision with a boat, but it was more likely red tide and old age.
