A new whale washes up on the beach of Finisterre, the third in less than a month

The province of Finistre reported this Monday at noon “About the status of a whale stranded in Plöwen”For about eight hours, daily confirming information from “Le Telegram”. Firefighters and gendarmes try to release the animal that is still alive.

“At this stage, the animal is alive”And “Efforts are on to releaseThe province said.

But its return promises to be complicated because the whale is particularly heavy – estimated weighing between 10 and 15 tons – and lacks considerable water. The presence of the animal at this place raises the question, “It is rare to see one here. There is not enough bottom in the bay and, to my knowledge, there have been no arrivals in the number of anchovies or sardines. In normal times, they inhabit the continental slope.” Towards the end”, explains Martin Barnard, the Gulf of Audiern correspondent for the National Stranding Network in Telegram.

The discovery comes eight days after the last cetacean was stranded off the coast of Finistre. This is the third cetacean discovered since early September. The two whales were stranded for a few days in Finistre, on the island of the Seine, on 2 September, and on a beach in Treguenaque, on 10 September.
