This 7 July 2014 video shows a truck, transporting a replica of the sperm whale, beached in December 2012 on the Razende Bol sandbank near Texel island in the Netherlands, to Texel’s Ecomare museum.
Translated from the Texelse Courant on Texel today:
Thursday 14 January 2016, 12:41
Once again a sperm whale has washed ashore. This time it’s a dead one and the location is the harbour of NIOZ [the Dutch marine research institute].
A seventh animal floats around at present dead just off the coast of the island.
UPDATE: the seventh floating sperm whale is still unconfirmed.
UPDATE: the seventh floating sperm whale seems not to exist.
This afternoon, the dead whales which had beached earlier on Texel will be transported to Harlingen. There will be research about the stomach contents of these whales, to maybe find out why they died.
