BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - Two more dolphins have been found dead off Beaufort County.

The Beaufort Gazette reported (http://bit.ly/PaoTIc) five dolphins have been found dead in Beaufort County since March 17.

Wayne McFee of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said one was found this weekend on Hilton Head Island and the other at Port Royal.

Employees from the South Carolina Marine Mammal Stranding Network were retrieving the animals Monday.

The other dead dolphins were found on Hilton Head Island, in the May River in Bluffton and in Fripp Inlet.

McFee said it is too early to tell if the dolphins had viruses or other diseases.
