Dolphin recovers from mysterious illness that killed 76 others

The only known survivor of a mysterious illness that killed 76 other bottlenose dolphins in Florida's Indian River Lagoon was released by SeaWorld staff on Tuesday. The dolphin was found stranded and ill with parasites and respiratory disease in June and nursed back to health.
