More than 130 dolphins have died after a mysterious mass stranding on a west African beach.

About 200 melon-headed whales – mid-sized dolphins – were found on a beach at the Cape Verde Islands.

Officials, residents and tourists managed to drag some of the animals back out to sea, but many returned.

Bulldozers buried 136 dead dolphins, local media reported.

Shortly afterwards, off the US east coast, about 26 pilot whales beached themselves on an island off Georgia, leaving 15 dead. It was the species’ second mass stranding along the state’s coast since July.
