A dolphin is dead after it ate too many fish.

Monty the dolphin, loved to eat fish.

Experts who conducted a post-mortem examination found that its stomach was overflowing with fish, and its last meal was stuck in its throat.

“Its stomach was full of fish, and I do not think there was room for anything else,” a marine expert of the United Kingdom, who examined the dolphin, said. “When it ate the last fish the meal had nowhere to go and it firmly lodged in the nostrils,” the expert added.

Last year, a cat that attracted national attention for its weight, died of obesity. Meow had a reputation as the fattest cat in the United States. The cat died after developing respiratory complications.

Meow lived at the Santa Fe Animal shelter after its elderly owner could no longer care for it. Meow had lost some weight and was doing well when he began having breathing problems.
