No plastics were found inside the injured Striped Dolphin found at Nai Yang Beach last week. The young dolphin died Wednesday following efforts to save it.

ThaiWhales is reporting that both Thais and foreign volunteers were working 24 hours a day to save the dolphin which was named as ‘Binlady’ (means beautiful lady from heaven), since it was rescued from the northern Phuket beach.

The dolphin was weak when found and its condition continued to deteriorate despite efforts to save it. Veterinarians tried to feed Binlady and provided veterinary treatment but the dolphin was too sick and officials believe it was found too late to save.

The autopsy results show that Binlady died of natural causes. No plastics or other foreign materials were found inside its stomach. Attending vets say its lymph nodes had become infected and affected the dolphin’s lungs, chest, liver and intestines.

Police to target motorbike rental shops when renters are unlicensed | The Thaiger

Police are targeting the rental operators of motorbikes when unlicensed foreigners have motorbike accidents.

Police today say they are questioning the renters of the bike involved in Sunday night’s crash on Patong Hill between a pickup truck driven by 47 year old Thavorn Glasueak and a motorbike carrying two Russians, a 29 and 31 year old.

This incident happened at the notorious hair-pin curve on the way up Patong Hill, from Kathu. Police say the motorbike veered out of its lane into the oncoming pickup truck travelling in the other lane.

The two Russians were rushed to Patong Hospital but died.

Meanwhile, the motorbike rental operator that rented out a motorbike to 17 year old British teenager Anthony Ryan last month was fined 2,000.

Anthony was on traveling in Thailand with a friend when he tried to pass traffic on the Kamala to Patong road and drove into an oncoming minivan in the opposite lane.

Read the report of his accident HERE.

Kamala Police report that the rental operator has already been fined 2,000 baht. They also warned other motorbike rental shops to ensure that the riders were properly licensed and took out legal insurance with their rental agreement.

In their defence police claim the rental operator said they had rented out two bikes to a second man that had a valid license. Police didn’t explain what the renter was going to do with the two motorbikes. (And if the renter had a valid license, why was the shop fined?)

At this stage Kamala Police have not named the rental operator in Patong.
