Pilot Whale Stranded

Last week, a short-finned male pilot whale (269.5 cm long) stranded live and unfortunately later died at Rodanthe in Pea Island Wildlife Refuge. Cape Hatteras National Seashore responded to the stranding. The animal was transported by UNC-Wilmington to the NC State Center for Marine Sciences and Technology (CMAST), where it was necropsied.  Results are pending.
