Cetacean Watch

The blog of 10th August featured a baby Minke whale trapped in the harbour basin at Leverburgh in South Harris. Just over two weeks later, on 27th August, we had another incident, right on our doorstep, again involving a Minke. On this occasion, tragically, the poor creature had been dead for up to a week before being washed up on Port of Ness beach - some two miles from Cabuzana B & B. Again we are left to ponder the reason for the loss of yet another outwardly healthy-looking creature - this time, a male adult of some 24 feet in length (see photographs). There is some speculation, in this instance, that the poor animal had become entangled in some rope, net or other debris, resulting in its demise. As usual, the hand of man is the likely cause of death of yet another precious fellow planet-dweller. Will the human race ever take responsibility for protecting the environment?
