Justice for the Dugong of Tibiao!
Mayor Gil Bandoja of Tibiao believes that “the big rock wrapped with a net which was used as a sinker is not commonly found in Tibiao. This means that the culprit in the death of the Dugong is from one of the neighboring towns and was only washed ashore”. The fishermen and fish brokers in the village suspected that a “lantip” or a wide-bladed knife was used in slicing the belly and forelimb or flipper of the mammal.
