Dear All, 

Apologies for cross posting in the first place.

A stranded dead bottlenose dolphin have been found in February on western
Turkish Black Sea coast during regular coastal survey. There was a diagonal
and shapely 14cm long wound on the middle lateral side of her body. When she
was found, the intestines had come out completely from this wound. During
necropsy also a hole was seen on her stomach. Please find the photos in the

If anyone who has experienced a similar case, seen a similar wound on a
marine mammal or have an idea about what the wound's source could be, we
would appreciate any exchange of views. 


Thank you in advance.
