Almost 100 Whales Die on Australian Beach
Almost 100 whales have died on a beach in Australia. Cheynes Beach Caravan Park in Western Australia noticed a pod of Long-finned Pilot Whales about 330 feet from the shore. Within hours, the entire pod of pilot whales were stranded on the shoreline. Despite the valiant human effort to save the lives of the remaining pilot whales, nature had another plan. The whales that had been shepherded out off of the beach re-beached themselves later that afternoon.
