I found a dead dolphin on the beach

I was kayaking in Edgartown harbor this afternoon, a few hundred yards to the west of Fuller Street beach.  From a distance we thought maybe it was a seal; you see those at South Beach all the time.  I never knew dolphins even swam around the Vineyard, let alone wash up on the shore.  I'm torn about posting these pictures, but I also feel like it would be crazy not to.  The last one in particular is really sad and difficult to look at.  It's clearly not something I've ever seen before, and I doubt most other people have either.
