Scottish pilot whale stranding


This video from New Zealand says about itself:

Just north of Pakawau on the evening of the 5th of February this pod of 25 pilot whales stranded themselves for the second time. They all refloated again later that night.

From Wildlife Extra:

May 2011. The Scottish SPCA and British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) are monitoring up to 100 pilot whales thought to be in danger of becoming stranded off the South Uist coast.

Head injuries

Initial reports suggest around 20 of the whales have severe head injuries.
