Rock-toothed dolphin stranded, rescued from Pangasinan shorelines

By Freddie G. Lazaro

Camp BGen Oscar Florendo, La Union (24 September) -- Police operatives reported Thursday that local fishermen had rescued a stranded rock-toothed dolphin along the shorelines in Barangay Macalang, Dasol, Pangasinan last Tuesday.

Police Officer Rogelio Soriano of the Maritime Station based in Dasol town told that local fishermen thought of the marine mammal as fishing net when they first seen it at the shoreline but, when they got near on it; they found out that it was a dolphin.

Soriano described the dolphin as 2.5 meters in length and weighed more than 100 kilograms.

He said that the discovered dolphin was immediately brought to the Alaminos City veterinary office for check up and for possible treatment on its wound.

However, City veterinarian Ronaldo Abarra confirmed that the dolphin has no body injury and very healthy.

After the thorough inspection, the dolphin was immediately released in the sea.

It was learned that this was the third time that a dolphin had been stranded along the shorelines in Dasol town. (PIA Ilocos Sur) [top]
