MetadataShow full item record
Three of 17 dolphins that have been sighted in Lingayen Gulf since Monday died from injuries believed to have been inflicted by humans, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) said yesterday. Some dolphins were found to have wounds that looked like they were hit by a spear, and one is being treated at the local BFAR office. Westly Rosario, chief of BFAR's National Integrated Fisheries Technology Center here, expressed dismay that some unscrupulous individuals view the animals as food.
