Rescued Pygmy sperm Whale Dies
As per reports, it has been revealed that a 10-feet long pygmy sperm whale was rescued by the Bald Head Island residents. While providing details of the same, the whale was found on Sunday and was in quite a bad position.
Addison Morris, 6, said they all tried to put it back in water and waited for a big tide, which could take it back. The whale as said was in a critical condition and was bleeding profusely from its sides. "Maybe from a net or something like that that she had eventually gotten free from and had some laceration on her side", said other rescuers.
Marine biologists said it is not surprising to know about the injuries suffered by the whale. Whales do suffer from injuries and they also get sick, like the pygmy sperm whale was. While talking about the surviving pattern of this specific whale, marine biologists said they generally remain far from beaches and are only found at beaches when they are either sick or confused.
Experts say after seeing the condition of whale, they did not think that it had survived. They said so as a number of visitors saw the whale floating in the water.
