LONGBOAT KEY, Fla. (AP) — A 3-year-old dolphin is being treated for severe pneumonia after a group of volunteers found her in southwest Florida

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune says Edna is 6.5 feet long and weighs 171 pounds. Her condition is stable, but she is still very sick.

She is being treated at Mote Marine Laboratory’s Dolphin and Whale Hospital.
