Yesterday 55 pilot whales beached themselves on Long Beach Kommetjie. Despite massive attempts to get them back out into sea, they kept coming back. Eventually marine scientists decided the best action would be to euthenaise them, as they were getting weak, hydrated and very stressed. A rifle shot to the brain. The shots rang out all afternoon and late into the night.
a sad day.
