MIRI: Personnel from the Fire and Rescue Department yesterday removed a carcass of a dolphin which was found at the Esplanade here.

Miri Zone 6 chief Supt Law Poh Kiong said they had earlier received a report about a dead dolphin washed ashore near Beach Republic at the Esplanade.

“A team of firemen went to the scene and they found the dead dolphin.

“We will give the carcass of the dolphin to the related agency for further investigation,” he said, adding the animal was a totally protected species.

In April this year, carcasses of three sea turtles and a dolphin were found washed ashore at the fishing village of Kampung Masjid in Kuala Baram.
