A few days ago, a young humpback whale beached itself out East. I've been following the story, and it's pretty sad. It's devastating to see such a large animal suffering, and crazy at the same time to see how ridiculous human involvement can get to the point where you wonder if we are causing more harm than good? The latest I read was that a huge tranquilizer dart was "lost" in one attempt to euthanize the whale. My local paper had a whole story on this today, about what one should do if they come across this huge "needle".
I am just so glad the poor animal is finally at peace.
