Whale euthanised on Warrnambool beach

A WHALE that became stranded on Lady Bay beach on Monday morning had to be euthanised. 

Early morning beach goers found the three-metre-long whale, believed to be a pygmy or dwarf sperm whale, on the sand early near the Worm Bay carpark bearing a large number of cuts and bruises. 

Staff from the Department of Environment and Primary Industries, Warrnambool City Council and a local vet worked on the whale. They determined its injuries were too great and decided to euthanise it. 

The public has been asked to stay away from the area.
