Team rushes to rescue stranded pilot whales in Eastham – Boston News, Weather, Sports

EASTHAM, MASS. (WHDH) – A team of animal welfare experts rushed to the rescue after six pilot whales were found washed up on a beach in Eastham on Monday.

Experts from the International Fund for Animal Welfare responded to a report of six stranded whales at Sunken Meadow Beach. Five of the six whales were able to swim away after the tide fell on Tuesday.

The youngest, a calf, didn’t make it.

“These animals are very large,” said an IFA representative. “The largest is estimated at £4,000.”

The team worked for hours to assess each whale’s health and provide fluids.

Almost 24 hours after they were beached, Sky7-HD filmed the whales swimming to safety.

Rescuers can monitor the tagged whales.
