Endangered whale shark found dead in Philippines

MANILA - AN ENDANGERED whale shark has been found dead hours after an attempt was made to guide the stranded animal to deeper waters in a Philippine bay. Nonie Enolva, a fisheries bureau officer, said on Thursday the whale shark most likely died from stress, lack of oxygen and three boat propeller wounds. The 7m long male was buried on Wednesday near the shore of Camarines Sur province's Cabusao township. The whale shark is the world's biggest fish species and a regional tourist attraction. -- AP
