The Netherlands: long-finned pilot whale beached


This video is called Long-finned Pilot Whale Species Identification.

From Dutch press agency ANP (translated):

On Schiermonnikoog island, a whale was beached.

The long-finned pilot whale probably died from becoming entangled in a fishing boat’s net

“This is only the fourteenth time since 1900 that a long-finned pilot whale beaches in The Netherlands”, marine biologist Kees Camphuysen said on Wednesday.
