Update: December, 25/2012 - 09:32

QUANG BINH (VNS)— Fishermen in central Quang Binh Province's Duc Trach Commune discovered two whales stranded in the coastal area of Duc Trach beach over the weekend.

Ho Dang Bay, a fisherman in the commune, said he found a whale measuring 1.2metres long and weighing 20kg swimming ashore as he anchored his boat last Saturday night.

Bay and other fishermen tried to rescue the whale 15 times, but it continually swam back to shore, he said. The whale has now been taken to a man-made lake to be cared of by wildlife experts.

One day later, another whale measuring about 1.5 metres in length and 25kg in weight drifted ashore. But it was already dead. — VNS
