This pod unlike yesterday really put up a fight to stay in deeper water and the hunters ended up roping their flukes and dragging them under the tarps.
Two juveniles were with three elders all the way to the very end.

Rescuers aid 10 stranded dolphins in Massachusetts harbor. Rescuers tried coaxing the dolphins into open water using 2 boats
Animal welfare activists began the new year in Massachusetts rescuing 10 dolphins stranded in Wellfleet Harbor.
International Fund for Animal Welfare spokeswoman Kerry Branon told The Boston Globe that the nonprofit group began receiving calls Sunday morning about three dolphins swimming in the harbor.
By the time rescue crews arrived, the number of dolphins was up to 10.
At first, they tried to coax the dolphins into open water using two boats.
When the tide went out, the rescuers had to adopt more aggressive techniques.
They used stretchers to move the animals one by one to transport trucks and released them in nearby Truro where the group hoped favorable winds and tides would help the animals make it out to sea.
