Dead dolphin found in Madrid park – over 300 kilometres from the sea
01 April 2016 @ 14:16

POLICE in Madrid are baffled at the discovery of a dead dolphin in the grounds of a stately home in the city – which is a three-hour drive from the nearest sea and has no water parks close by.

The sea creature was seen in the land belonging to what used to be a country house, or casa de campo, wound up in a wire netting which it appeared to have become trapped in.

Its body is in an advanced state of decomposition, says the Municipal Police force.

Officers cannot work out how the animal got there.

It was found by a local man who was out walking his dog in the casa de campo area, Madrid's main green area along with the Retiro Park and the site for the city zoo.

According to the man who found it, his dogs detected the smell and traced it to an area of the park close to the Boadilla del Monte road, and he contacted the current owner of the casa del campo who, in turn, rang the police.

Despite the zoo being nearby, police do not believe the dolphin could have escaped from there, since staff say none of their animals are missing.
