Pilot Whales Beached in Florida

More than 20 pilot whales came ashore on a South Florida beach this past weekend and while hundreds of residents in Fort Pierce tried to help them, only a few whales are expected to survive. Five pilot whales - two calves and three juveniles - were transported to Florida Atlantic University's Harbor Branch Institute for rehabilitation. Unfortunately, one of the rescued whales passed away, and the rest of the whales died of natural causes or had to be humanely euthanized. Autopsies will be performed on the deceased whales to try to figure out what caused them to become stranded.
