CHARLOTTE COUNTY, FL (WBBH) — A beached whale washed ashore on a small island in southwest Florida.
The young sperm whale was found on the Gasparilla Island by beachgoers early Tuesday. Officials say they believe the calf was separated from its mother.
Video shows rescue teams and biologist working for hours to save the baby whale — who was in pretty bad shape.
Unfortunately the calf had to be put down.
