  • Naples dock keeper Casey Bollenback searches for signs of the distressed dolphin that was spotted near Naples pier on Tuesday. The dolphin appeared to be hindered by fishing line or netting on its right pectoral fin. Bollenback and Dockmaster Roger Jacobsen searched for the dolphin by boat on Wednesday morning, only to get a call on Wednesday afternoon with news the dolphin was spotted again. The dolphin still had the netting on its fin. Naples Dockmaster Roger Jacobsen said city officials would continue to monitor the distressed dolphin and report updates to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
