CLEARWATER BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a rough-toothed dolphin found beached on Clearwater Beach is being treated by veterinarians at SeaWorld Orlando.

Crews from Clearwater Marine Aquarium retrieved the dolphin on Sunday.

The Tampa Tribune (https://bit.ly/1dZ0kdp ) reports the 200-pound, 7-foot male dolphin was placed in quarantine, where veterinarians gave it fluids and antibiotics. The dolphin was extremely weak.

According to a release from the theme park, the dolphin will receive round-the-clock care as needed.
