CHATTOGRAM, Oct 14 (UNB): A dead dolphin was found in the Halda River of Chattogram on Tuesday night.
Locals spotted the partially decomposed and 48-inch long dolphin at 8pm and buried it, said Gujra UP chairman Lion SahabuddinArif in Raozan.
It had injury marks on its body and fishing net was tangled with its tail, he said, suspecting that the dolphin was hit by an engine-run boat after being trapped in a fishing net.
In the past two and a half years, a total of 27 dolphins died in the Halda River, he said.
Wildlife Management and Nature Conservation Division officials said the dolphin is locally known as 'Utom' or 'Susuk' which is found in fresh water.
