The whale, measuring about ten metres, became stranded on the eastern Algarve beach shortly after 11am yesterday.

 

A battle lasting around two hours eventually bore fruit as the whale was safely returned to the sea with the assistance of a small boat.

 

Officials said they will be monitoring the whale to ensure it does not come too close to the beach once again.

Comments

Well, they did not monitor the whale. It was found dead on the Armona beach.
