A young whale shark has been found dead on the coast of Philippines, villagers saw the shark drifting in Manlia Bay , then the 22–feet long body was hold on the back of a truck and was taken to a local fish library for tests.
They saw no visible warns on the shark’s body and suspected it could have eaten something lethal on the Bay.
“Before we bury it, we need to find out the cause of death. We will take it to a library and see the results later, since the fish men found the whale shark”,
Local fisher men said they saw the shark eating small fishes on the bay and found it dead the next day.
Manila bay is considered one of the most polluted bodies of water in the Philippines with solid wastes and heavy metals contaminating the water.
