中国警察追捕杀鲸凶手

Police in southwest China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region are hunting the killer of a whale shark after detaining(拘留) two other people for purchasing(购买) the butchered(被屠杀的) state-protected animal.

A netizen posted photos Saturday showing a shark being pulled out of the sea off Beihai City and transported(运送) away, prompting(促使) police investigations(调查).

A spokesperson with Beihai's public security bureau said that a suspect(嫌疑犯) surnamed Liao bought the 370-kg shark for 2 yuan ($0.3 USD) per kg Saturday and sold it to another surnamed Huang for 5 yuan/kg.

Huang is alleged(据称) to have turned the meat(肉) into fertilizer(肥料) and sold it on.

Whale shark is considered "vulnerable" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and is a Class-B protected species(物种) in China. They are spotted in waters off the Guangxi and Guangdong regions every May and June.
