Hurricane Isaac killed so many fawns in parts of southeast Louisiana that Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission is limiting the deer season in Plaquemines and St. Bernard parishes and the Lake Maurepas Basin.
The archery season remains the same, but others are shortened and limited to bucks.
Dates also were changed in several wildlife management areas.
In Plaquemines Parish, biologists report high fawn mortality, moderate adult deer mortality and severe damage to habitat from salt water shock and storm surge debris.
A dead young dolphin washed ashore in an isolated area along the Mississippi River bank at Baton Rouge, state Wildlife and Fisheries personnel say.
Fisheries division biologist Mandy Tumlin says that in seven years with the department, she's never heard of a dolphin getting so far upriver. She says it might have done so by drafting along the bow of a ship headed upriver or by swimming up during Hurricane Isaac.
