Prevent Mass Stranding Of Pilot Whales:O

Prevent Mass Stranding Of Pilot Whales:O

Experts in whale strandings from the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) and a senior inspector from the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA) are travelling to the scene in case the whales attempt to beach themselves. (...) Calum Watt, the SSPCA's senior inspector for the Western Isles, is en route to the loch. He said: "When pilot whales come inshore there is a very strong chance some among the group are sick or injured. "We believe around 20 of these whales have severe head injuries but at this stage we aren't sure of the cause. One possibility is these injuries were sustained during a previous attempt to strand themselves. "Pilot whales have extremely strong social bonds, which sadly means healthy whales within the pod will follow sick and injured whales on to the shore."
