Officials at Cherng Talay Tambon Organisation (OrBorTor) were notified that the dolphin had been washed up in Cherng Talay.
Ma Ann Samran, chief of the OrBorTor, said: “Scratches were found on the dolphin. It smelled bad.
Officials at the Phuket Marine Biological Centre [PMBC] have been notified.”
A PMBC spokesperson said: “The striped dolphin was already rotting and there was no use in taking it back to the centre. We collected some tissue to investigate the cause of its death.”
It was buried by OrBorTor staff.
