According to the Regional Information Officer, Sandie Ross, the Whale was tangled in the fishermen’s net when it was found. It has since been set free by the seamen.

“The fishermen who were there said they found it about 1 amthis morning and they have been working all the time to have it released from the sein… it’s still alive. They dug like a hole on the beach floor so that it can get into deeper water.”whale

She added that, “as it is now, it’s freed but they have it there tied by the tail and efforts are being made to take it out back into the deep sea.”

Ross could not immediately identify the Whale’s specie, but said it will be transported to deep waters soon. [Tracey Khan – Drakes]
