Pink dolphin spotted in Louisiana

September 14, 2017

A rare pink dolphin has been spotted in a Louisiana ship channel.

Bridget Boudreaux was on a boat cruise with her husband in the Calcasieu Ship Channel when she saw a group of dolphins swimming and playing in the water, two of which were pink.

“I about fell out the boat,” she said. “I was like, wow, that’s not a regular dolphin, that’s a pink dolphin.”

Louisiana is no stranger to pink dolphins. Two years ago, a pink bottle-nosed dolphin, locally known as “pinky”, was spotted by Captain Eric Rue, who runs a chartered boat service on the Calcasieu River.

He first spotted the dolphin 10 years ago when she was a baby, but when she appeared again in 2015 Captain Rue thought she could be pregnant.
