Whale Trapped In Pipeline

Animal experts in Israel tried unsuccessfully to save a young whale trapped in an oil pipeline terminal Sunday.

The whale was apparently disoriented, and veterinary experts tried to coax the mammal back into the open water of the Mediterranean Sea.

People gathered near the water to watch the rescue attempt. Unfortunately, it did not have a happy ending. After thrashing in the water for a while, the whale died. It may have suffered an injury to one of its fins.
