Dolphin Returned To Ocean After Rehab Stay At SeaWorld Orlando

A dolphin is back in the Atlantic Ocean off of Florida's coast in St. Augustine following a rehab stint at SeaWorld Orlando. 

The 265-pound sub-adult Atlantic bottlenose dolphin was found in February with life-threatening injuries on Ponte Vedra Beach.

Officials determined that the mammal had sustained multiple shark-bite wounds and was suffering from pneumonia. 

The dolphin was named "Sharkie" and underwent an intense four-month rehabilitation at SeaWorld before being deemed healthy enough to be returned to the ocean last Thursday.
