It's been several days since a wayward dolphin has been "trapped" in a creek near Cape May Court House.

In that time, news helicopters have buzzed overhead, and some folks have tried to "rescue" the dolphin by coaxing it back into the bay.

So far, no success. At last check, the dolphin was still there.

We've been thinking that the dolphin needs a name.

Giving the dolphin a name

Throughout the day, locals have been chiming in on some naming recommendations. Some of these are pretty good!

We can't just keep referring to that dolphin as "that dolphin" - it does need a name.
