A whale sighted off Pok Fu Lam on Saturday may already have left Hong Kong, with conservation officials yesterday confirming there were at least two sightings over the weekend.
A Pok Fu Lam resident who saw the whale from a distance suspected it was a baby humpback. Officers who conducted a search said it was probably a whale but they could not determine the species.
The Pok Fu Lam resident who reported the sighting on Saturday said yesterday: "It was a small one, perhaps three metres long. It was swimming between Lamma and Cyberport and heading south. It left the water sometimes and we could see its tail." She said the whale was spotted in the evening and it spent two hours swimming in the area. But poor visibility made it difficult to take pictures.

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said 194 rabbits were abandoned last year, up 3 percent from 188 abandoned in 2009. But [the SPCA] warned that the figure may rise by 30 to 40 percent this year because more people bought or gave rabbits to celebrate the new lunar year.
Boyfriends who plan to buy rabbits for their girlfriends on Valentine's Day should find something else.
