A rare blind dolphin found dead in Indus river
On Wednesday, a rare blind dolphin was found dead near Kandhkot village in the Indus river.
According to details, the local residents found the blind dolphin dead on the bank of river Indus, when they went out to cut wood for themselves. Locals believe that the blind dolphin might have died because of the poisonous chemicals put by fishermen in water to catch fishes.
Wildlife Protection Department failed to reach the site so far.
Indus River Dolphins are grey-brown in colour, sometimes with a pinkish belly, and measure between 1.5 metres and 2.5 metres in length, weighing a maximum of 90 kg.
