Post mortems are very complex and detailed events and it’s important not to over-interpret what we have seen today without the more detailed analysis that will follow from lab work. However, Dr Brownlow who led the PM has said that the visible injuries that the stranded female pilot whale suffered, which she had in common with some of the other whales in the pod (to beak and melon), did not lead to her death. It is likely that she had some other underlying health issue that ultimately led to her death. This is good news for the rest of the whales, who have not been seen this morning, and BDMLR’s latest report is that the whales have moved offshore.
