See How A Sperm Whale Was Lifted After Being Stranded In China. Photos

The corpse of a stranded sperm whale is pictured being lifted at a dock in Huizhou Harbour, south China’s Guangdong Province. The 12-meter-long whale was spotted trapped in fishing nets in the waters of the Bay. After the whale was freed from the nets, authorities and zoologists tried to guide it back to the deep sea.
However, it continued to swim in shallow waters and was confirmed to have been stranded near the wharf on Tuesday afternoon. Experts speculated that, rather than being lost, the whale intentionally entered shallow waters due to its bad health.
