Gulf Coast: Makeshift animal morgues house oiled and ill creatures that didn't survive

Gulf Coast: Makeshift animal morgues house oiled and ill creatures that didn't survive  --So far, about 1,000 dead animals ­-- birds, turtles and dolphins -- have been reported and they are being kept at undisclosed locations. 15 Jun 2010 Within each of the animal-rescue stations set up along the Gulf Coast is a makeshift morgue for oiled and ill creatures that didn't make it. And behind the scenes, pathologists and laboratory staff are carefully cataloging each dead creature as part of larger criminal, civil and scientific inquiries into how the Gulf of Mexico oil spill has affected animals and their habitats. Hundreds of birds including pelicans, seagulls, terns and gannets are being gathered by wildlife teams in an effort both to save them from their veils of oil and to help them recover from the effects that it can have on their lungs and digestive systems.
