Stranded whale

Have Your Say

The BBC reserves the right to edit comments submitted.

i don't think people should harm whales they are part of our world and we should look after them.

nathan mills
there looks nothin wron with the whale there so how did it die. i think if them people left the whale alone i think it wood of survived

karl mower
with more and more whales comeing to our coast i fell we need to safly move them back into open water without killing them and to let nature to take it course.

leave to free its self infuture or you couldend up herting it

samantha curran
i think they should of left the whale alone and maybe it would of found its way back but insted like the one in the thames they interfied and it died which i think is wrong so in future i think they should leave them alone

mr haynes
why do you cover things like this but you never do local fetes!

Nice whale

If the animal is distressed, then unfortunately it is more humane to put it down. Several attempts have been mde over the years to guide these whales to safety but usually they die. Like the one that was in the Thames. We dont know how much pain they feel and so we must take the responsibility.
