Yet another dead whale spotted; this time at Malpe beach


Locals who first spotted the dead whale with its tail separated from the body suspect that  the whale might have died due to the serious injuries in suffered after it was hit by a ship. Hundreds of people swarmed the beach to have a look at the dead whale. The CMC workers later buried the carcass of the whale  near the seashore at Malpe.

It may be recalled here that  a dead whale was spotted at Mogaveerapatna in Ullal and another at  Tannirbavi  a few days ago.

According to marine experts  the whales  while moving in groups get caught in waves and get stranded on the seashore where they die mainly owing to dehydration or a block in the blowhole.  They  rule out the possibility of the whales getting hit by ships as there is no fishing  during this season.
