Interesting, was it stuck in the plastic bag as it appears in the photograph?

I was out of the bag when I found it but it was obviously wrapped up in it at some point. I’m assuming it was caught by a fishing boat then lost or thrown over the side and then it washed up.

Looks quite like a harbour porpoise?

Looks more like the porpoise or dolphin family going on the mouth, you should report any sightings like this to somewhere like marine conservation

I think your right, it’s such a shame people are killing these wonderful creatures.
Thanks for the identification

Opened the picture to have a look and it links to your photo bucket album. Not sure if you know this or not but it says there are like 191 photos to view. You might want to consider removing the link if any of the photos are personal.

Suggestion for you
Create folders in your photobucket and password protect them (even if it's the same password as the account) and only leave non personal images in the main folder (as these can be searched and found easily)

I have been using photobucket for years but for the odd linking image to get info (like your thread) I'd just use Imgur (you don't need an account)
