BP oil spill connected to Dolphin deaths
We're getting a better look at the damage done by the BP oil spill to dolphins.
Dolphins near the spill site are suffering from lung diseases and other abnormalities consistent with oil exposure.
That's according to a newly released study.
The paper makes the strongest connection to date between the spill and dolphin deaths, which jumped in the Gulf of Mexico after the spill.
Federal Scientist Lori Schwacke says she has never seen such a large percentage of very sick dolphins.
Bp, which paid for the study, disputes that it shows a clear link between the spill and dolphin illnesses.
