Dolphins strand in Eastham
PROVINCETOWN - Bathers at Herring Cove got an unscheduled dolphin show this afternoon. It started when a group of about 20 Atlantic White Sided Dolphins were spotted off First Encounter Beach in Eastham.
All but two were able to swim away. The Cape Cod Stranding Network brought the two dolphins to Herring Cove Beach in Provincetown by truck. Volunteers kept the animals wet while samples were taken and a satellite tracking device was placed on one of them.
They were then successfully released to the thunderous applause of the large crowd that gathered. Click here for video of the release. Photos/video by Tim Caldwell.

At one point the man left the home and led police on a chase to First Encounter Beach before returning to the home. He finally surrendered around 4:30 AM. The unidentified man will be charged with assault and battery on a police officer, failing to stop for a police officer and resisting arrest.
