A three-metre long dugong was found dead in the sea off Thailand’s southern province of Trang today, bringing the total number of dead dugong this year to seven, according to the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources.

 

Fishermen found the animal and towed it ashore for veterinarians to investigate the cause of its death.

 

The dugong weighs about 250kgs and is thought to be 70-80 years old. From the degree of decomposition, it is estimated that it died 4-5 days ago.

Amassing animals and shame these should die for whatever cause.  At least the fishermen were responsible and took it to shore allowing the vets to discover the cause of death.

 

Just think if they had been washed up on the beach and the RTP were involved, they no doubt would have immediately blamed the deaths on the Burmese 😂

Sadly becoming a common occurrence. Dugongs, dolphins, whales. Much could be done, but nothing will be unfortunately. We humans are an irresponsible, selfish lot. :post-4641-1156693976:
