Falsh Killer Whales Beach Themselves Near Perth

About 125 False Killer Whales beached themselves at Geographe Bay near Bussleton, south of Perth, yesterday. Some 1500 volunteers braved the cold waters all day to rescue them. Amazingly only one whale died.

It was reported that it isn't known why whales beach themselves. Well, it seems that Japanese scientists would be happy to lend some assistance here. They wish to kill whales for "scientific purposes" and would dearly love to get there hands on the carcass.

I have a theory. Perhaps the whales just wanted to become sashimi in Japanese dishes. After all, that's where the whales used in Japanese "scientific purposes" end up anyway. We all know that.
