Two Por­tuguese man-of-war wash up on beach

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

On Sun­day, a North Syd­ney woman spot­ted two Por­tuguese man-of-war on Ken­ning­ton Cove Beach and peo­ple should be on the look out for the ven­omous an­i­mal on land and in wa­ter.

“I was just walk­ing down the beach, as I nor­mally do. They were up to­wards the back of the beach, where there is a lot of rock. I think high tide must have washed them up,” Wendy Russell ex­plained. “They were just sit­ting around, be­ing blown by the wind. They were very no­tice­able. But if you don’t know what they are then you wouldn’t know you are sup­posed to stay away from them.”

Russell took pictures of the an­i­mals and sent them to the De­part­ment of Nat­u­ral Re­sources (DNR) for re­moval since their sting is very painful.
