Rare dolphin thought killed by fisherman

THE body of an endangered Irrawaddy dolphin was found floating in the Mekong River on Tuesday in Kratie province’s Prek Prasap district, officials said. Nun Kimsan, an officer with the Mekong dolphin preservation team in Kratie, said yesterday that the dolphin died after it became snared at night in a fishing net of a villager, who apparently attacked it. “We found a wound on its head and concluded it was killed by a fisherman,” he said. Two Irrawaddy dolphins were reported dead last year in Kratie province, he said.
