RIP Baby Whale

The poor Australian baby whale was euthanized today. Read the story here:

Just to be clear, while I think this story is incredibly sad, I am in general agreement with the wildlife experts. Cestacians are extremely difficult to rehabilitate and they had no way of re-creating the mother's milk that this whale would have needed. I am upset about it because it is sad, NOT because I disagree with how these events played out.

I think I will have to lie to Rod and tell him the whale found it's mother. He was very sad after seeing the story yesterday:-( At that point they had lost the whale and were trying to find it again. Poor thing.
