A 7-foot-long, black-and-white common dolphin, stranded and swimming in shallow water just south of Los Angeles, has brought the entertainment capitol to a standstill for the last 24 hours.

First spotted midday Friday, the dolphin had become separated from its pod and was obviously in stress as it swam in circles in the Bolsa Chica wetlands off of Huntington Beach on Friday.

That brought out several news helicopters and crowds along the shore.

By Saturday morning, it was still "Must See TV."

Marine mammal rescue experts initially tried to nudge the dolphin in the right direction but decided that was making matters worse.

They've decided to keep a watchful eye and hope the dolphin figures out how to get back to sea on its own.
