Finback Whale run aground in Vejle Fjord

The World > Europe > Denmark

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.

Questo panorama è stato scattato in Denmark, Europe

Questa è una vista generale di Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
