Finback Whale run aground in Vejle Fjord

After having been observed for some time in the inner Danish water a finback whale took the wrong turn into the low water in Vejle Fjord where it ran aground. Several attempt to pull it free have failed. And the weak whale have now been left to die.

Two days have passed and many people have come to watch this drama of nature. 

A short while after I took this picture I heard that the whale unexspectedly got free of the ground. But  sadly took the way further into the fjord. And again it ran aground.

20.6.2010: After four days in Vejle Fjord the whale died in the morning.

21.6.2010: The 17 meter long 30 ton heavy whale where lifted onto the harbour, where scientist starts to dissect it. The meat are to be sent to destruction. some of the organ are kept for  scientific studies and the skeleton will be put in a big container with elephant dung to be cleaned and then sent to the Zoological Museum in Copenhagen.
