CAMERON PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

On Saturday there was another sighting of "Pinky," the rare albino dolphin sometimes spotted in Cameron Parish.

And maybe there's more than one "Pinky" swimming around Cameron.

Bridget A. Boudreaux said she saw two pink dolphins, along with some non-albino dolphins, playing together in the Calcasieu Ship Channel near Hackberry around 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 5.

Boudreaux sent KPLC a photo of one of the dolphins; she said the other pink dolphin had vanished before she could get her camera.

If you happen to catch a glimpse of Pinky/Pinkies, please send photos and video to newmedia@kplctv.com

    Rain chances increasing the next few daysRain chances increasing the next few days

    Tonight, skies will be cloudy but we will have a very little chance for rain. It will be slightly warmer overnight. Winds are still blowing out of the south, and that has slightly increased our humidity, and will therefore prevent temperatures from falling tonight. Most of Southwest Louisiana will cool down to the mid 40s, while a couple places may reach the upper 30s. Early Friday morning could have a few light showers near the coast. There is a 20% chance we see some rain.
