A team of veterinarians from Thailand’s Department of Marine and Coastal Resources was sent to a mangrove forest in Bang Khun Thian district yesterday (Saturday), to investigate the remains of a 10-metre Bryde’s whale.


The dead whale was spotted on Friday evening floating in the sea, opposite a seafood restaurant in Samut Sakhon province. Khok Kham district police were alerted. The whale’s bodywas later washed ashore in a mangrove forest in Bang Khun Thian.

The vets took samples from the dead mammal’s stomach, to take to the lab for analysis, in the hope of determining the cause of its death. Bruises were found on the belly of the mammal, but the vets could not determine whether they were inflicted pre or post mortem.
