BEAUFORT, SC (WMBF) – A half a dolphin washed up on shore on Folly Beach near Charleston on November 1, not far from where the infamous Great White Shark, Mary Lee, was being tracked via a tracking device. 

Check out this picture snapped by Mark Gray for Beaufort Online. We can't confirm the validity of the picture at this time, but what do you think? Do you think she's responsible or something else?

The photo was originally mislabeled as being taken on Hunting Island Beach on November 7, but the Beaufort Online Facebook page posted a correction, stating the photo was actually taken on November 1 on Folly Beach, on the other side of the St. Helena Sound.

The Ocearch tracking map shows that Mary Lee was still in the area on November 1.

Mary Lee is currently being tracked by OCEARCH. As of this morning she is pinging well off the coast in the Lowcountry.

You can track Mary Lee and many other sharks on the Ocearch website here:http://www.ocearch.org/
