A dolphin that was pushed into a canal in Louisiana during Hurricane Ida was rescued Sunday morning.

It was a team effort Sunday as Chief Randy Fandal with the Slidell Police Department and many other organizations came out to the Schneider Canal to assist in the capture of the dolphin.

Nearly a dozen people got into the water to rescue the dolphin. You can watch video of that rescue in the video player above.

They were able to secure the dolphin onto an orange tarp and load it into a vehicle that had a tank of water.

The dolphin then received a police escort and was transported to a vet. Police said the dolphin will then go to The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies for rehabilitation.
