sperm whale beached in ring,waterford, ireland .Was surprised when I heard this on the radio. thanks to WLR fm,Sperm whale beached. It was sad to see the whale still breathing. the biologists said the whale was sick and beached itself. and they could'nt do anything to help it.
By WLR fm: A 10-metre-long sperm whale washed ashore on a beach at Ring near Dungarvan at around lunchtime today. Andrew Malcolm, a member of the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group, is at thescene at the moment.He says the only humane thing to do is to keep a distance from the animal, asit could take hours for it to die.He's organising a cordon to keep people away from the animal, as it's been determined that nothing can be done to help the whale given its size and the location where it's stranded.
