MINKE WHALE WASHES ASHORE IN NOVA SCO­TIA

Ottawa Citizen - - CANADA -

Con­ser­va­tion­ists are hop­ing to de­ter­mine what killed a minke whale that washed ashore in south­ern Nova Sco­tia. Amy Tu­dor of Mariner Cruises Whale and Se­abird Tours says a fish­er­man spot­ted the whale near Tiver­ton Fri­day. She found the 7.5-me­tre whale on a rocky shore­line. An­drew Reid of the Marine An­i­mal Re­sponse So­ci­ety says some of the pho­tos sug­gest there were abra­sions that could have been caused by rope. He says there have been about 30 minke deaths along the East Coast.
