Spinner Dolphin found in Tibiao

A seven-foot, 70-kilogram spinner dolphin (Stenella longirostris), was found by the fishermen floating a few kilometers away from the shoreline of Tibiao town in Antique province on Saturday.

Nick Javier, fisherman from Barangay Lapaz, found the dolphin, locally known as “rumba-rumba” in Kinaray-a language, and had to tow it to the shore and report it to Punong Barangay Ricky Quioyo. The PNP Tibiao and MDRRMC responder conducted an initial evaluation of the dolphin. A post-mortem will be done today by concern agencies.
