At least 11 more dolphins have stranded themselves on the shores of Cape Cod this morning as the mass strandings enter the second month. The International Fund for Animal Welfare said at least one of the 11 had died. The animal welfare group said the dolphins were found in an area commonly known as “the gut,” a muddy area near the Herring River in Wellfleet. “The team is out there now with 10 live dolphins,” IFAW spokesman Michael Booth said. “It could take quite awhile; it’s a treacherous location with lots of mud. The team is trying to pull them out of the mud and bring them to our rescue trailers.”
