Dolphin stuck in California wetlands

A dolphin swims in Orange County's Bolsa Chica wetlands in Huntington Beach, Calif., on Friday, April 27, 2012. Marine mammal experts in Southern California have decided to wait and see whether this dolphin that strayed into a shallow wetlands channel can find its way out. The healthy, strong and fast dolphin will not let people get close, and officials say it could be harmful to the animal and rescuers if a capture is attempted. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)
