13 whales die after stranding on a beach in County Donegal, Ireland

Almost all members of a pod of 13 whales which live-stranded on a beach in Co Donegal yesterday have died despite the best efforts of locals to save them.

A spokesperson for the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) told breakingnews.ie that nine of the animals had passed away and been buried, and the remaining four were expected to expire in the coming hours.

“It’s obviously a sad occasion but the best thing to do at this point is to leave them alone and let nature take its course,” NPSW ranger Emmet Johnson said, advising curious onlookers to stay away from the beach.

“Council officials have buried the dead whales, and all will be buried in time.”
