Dead whale

Sadly I have just had news that a bottlenose whale seen off Bournemouth in the UK has been found stranded dead on the beach. Bottlenose whales do not live in the English Channel so there was concern for its safety.

The dead whale had marks on its head that suggested that it might have been caught in nets or rope. Scientists have been studying the dead whale and hopefully they will be able to find out why it died.
