A baby Chinese white dolphin's carcass was washed ashore at Cafeteria New Beach near Castle Peak Road, Tuen Mun early yesterday. The metre-long decomposing body of the male dolphin was found at 3am. Tissue samples were taken to determine the cause of death. It is the seventh Chinese white dolphin found dead in Hong Kong waters this year.
