Another porpoise washed ashore at Tong Fuk

A finless porpoise has washed up on the Tong Fuk beach yesterday, the latest in a spate of strandings.

It was the third found on Lantau and the eighth in Hong Kong this year, Apple Daily reports.

The porpoise, about 1.1 metres long, was severely decomposed, with its abdomen and tail cut open.

The Ocean Park Conservation Foundation said it was not possible to determine the cause of the wounds.

The foundation says members of the public who find a beached porpoise or dolphin should call the 1823 hotline.
