Mayor fears fishing net killed dolphin

PHUKET: Officials believe that a dolphin found dead near Koh Bon, just off Rawai Beach, was killed by a fishing net today.

“From a quick inspection, I could see marks on its head and upper body that looked like they were made by a fishing net,” said Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos.

The dolphin was taken to the Phuket Marine Biological Center to confirm the cause of death.
