Nine pilot whales stranded on Spain’s northern coast die

CARRENO, Spain: Nine stranded pilot whales have died on a beach on Spain’s northern coast, but local authorities and residents managed to help others at sea, the regional government said on Tuesday.
The whale was sighted on Monday at Morris Beach, in Caranio, Asturias. The government of Asturias said officers and volunteers worked until late in the night to help them.
“Half a dozen have managed to return to the sea, although they remain close to the coast. Efforts are now focused on preventing them from returning to the beach,” it said.
The bodies of nine dead whales will undergo an autopsy in the nearby town of Guijn.
Images of stranded whales attracted worldwide attention earlier this month in Australia, where hundreds of people died.
