Tourists visiting Bangbao Bay, on Koh Kood Island off Thailand’s eastern province of Trat, have been asked to exercise caution while swimming in the sea after a false killer whale (Pseudorca crassidens) was spotted swimming in shallow waters near the beach.

 

Officials from the research centre of the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources and volunteers from Koh Kood Tambon Administration Organization were deployed yesterday in three rubber boats to try to ease the mammal away from the beach, but without success as it kept swimming back.

 

The officials eventually gave up and sought to warn tourists and speed boats to exercise caution and to try to refrain from disturbing or provoking the creature, which is actually a type of dolphin.

This whale should be reported to the FAKE news commission (or whatever it is that they named that effort).
