BANGKOK (AP) An Irrawaddy dolphin calf who was simply rescued and nursed night and day for weeks by veterinarians and volunteers after his rescue from the tidal pool on Thailands shore has died despite almost all their efforts, officials who have been providing emergency look after the pet said Wednesday.
The infant was nicknamed Paradon, roughly translated as brotherly burden, when he was found by fishermen on July 22, and a large number of veterinarians and volunteers helped look after him at Thailands Marine and Coastal Resources Research and Development Center in Rayong in the Gulf of Thailand.
