P p p p p pick up a porpoise

Posted by Strandings Officer on Aug 16, 2011 4:40:38 PM

Just this second got back from picking up a porpoise that was reported as live stranded in Ulrome. A MASSIVE thankyou to Tanya who was an amazing help with this animal (and who also has an absolutely beautiful baby girl).

 

The animal was male, and incredibly fresh as you can see in the photos. Hopfully the animal will be pm'd in the next few days but I know the boys at the Zoo are shattered after a long night pming a sowerbys beaked whale! Busy here at the moment.

As always I'll post up cause of death, if known in a few weeks time when the pm results come back.

 

UPDATE: Cause of Death Category: Pneumonia, Parasitic.
