This Monday, August 29, 2022, around 6:45 p.m., a somewhat agitated marine animal approached very close to the edge of the port beach in Locquirec and created “a small wind of panic among the people present” reports Jean -Yves Pontailler, president of the local SNSM.
The animal, unidentified for the moment, suddenly came out of the water at the level of the sailing school on the edge of the beach, waving its tail very violently. During this holiday period, there were still a lot of people on the beach and in the port of Locquirec. “The animal, which must have been surprised by the lack of depth, was banging its tail hard against the water, people were scared,” explains Jean-Yves Pontailler.
The event was so fleeting that no one has yet managed to identify the species of the marine mammal. A dolphin, a blue-skinned shark like in 2016?
Since then, no one has seen the animal, which seems to have gone back to sea.
