A Dolphin Got Lost And Swam Up A River In Wales

The dolphin was first seen in the River Dee on Monday, and spent two days trying to find its way back to sea. Also it may have attempted to invade England.

1. The dolphin was first spotted by members of the public on Monday, swimming around the River Dee near Connah’s Quay in Flintshire, Wales.

That means it probably crossed the border into England, potentially heralding a massive influx of Welsh dolphins.

5. While it was there, maintenance workers captured this spectacular picture of it.
