KUANTAN: Only two turtles were found dead on the beach near Kampung Sungai Ular here, instead of four as reported by a newspaper today, said Pahang Fisheries Department director Datuk Adnan Hussein.
He said so far the department had only received two reports of turtle deaths since last Saturday.
"One turtle was suspected to have died from an oil spill while another was suspected of being hit by a boat propeller. However, further investigations are still being carried out.
"The carcasses of the turtles have been buried after all the necessary information was recorded," he said when contacted here today.
Adnan said the beach at Kampung Sungai Ular was one of the turtle landing locations here.
Last Wednesday, the beach along Kuantan was found polluted by black oil spills believed to have been from a ship in the open sea.
The oil spills were cleaned up last Friday. — Bernama
