Shark attack dolphin saved


A dolphin, which was apparently attacked by a shark, returned to Moreton Island off the coast of Queensland, Australia.

Staff from ocean wildlife park Sea World surrounded the dolphin and captured it so it could undergo surgery in a special care unit.

Locals had been worried about the fate of the dolphin which had been spotted injured several days earlier.
