Nearly 150 beached whales die in Australia
Only six whales have survived a mass stranding of pilot whales on the coast of Western Australia.
About 150 of the animals were found beached at Hamelin Bay, about 300km (180 miles) south of Perth.
Their discovery by a local fisherman on Friday prompted a major rescue effort to return them to deeper waters.
However, by nightfall, more than 140 of the whales had died, with deteriorating weather conditions and the threat of frenzied sharks impeding efforts.click here for link
