Fishermen found the 2-meter long whale beached along Dasol Bay on Sept. 23 and brought it back to the sea. But it was sighted again in the afternoon on the same day so village officials decided to bring it to the BFAR facility in Alaminos City. Samantha Licudine, a BFAR veterinarian, said the whale had many scratches in the body and had a deep cut near its snout. “Maybe it was trying to escape from something so there was a laceration,” she said. The whale was given intensive medication and was under observation when it died.
