Hundreds of dolphins beached in the Philippines

200 to 300 dolphins were seen swimming slowly only one kilometer away from the shores of Bataan in the Philippines.
Among the explanations forwarded for this unusual and strange phenomenon are: the dolphins could have been caught by a strong seaquake while diving for food underwater, or the dolphins' leader is sick.

Smaller pods of dolphins numbering "in the tens and twenties" had beached themselves elsewhere in the Philippines previously, but this was the first time so many had done so at the same time and place.

More media reports on this on the wildsingapore news blog.
