New Zealand sees dead end for beached whales
(01-16 09:04)

New Zealand conservation officials said they would have to euthanize eight pilot whales stranded on a remote beach where five others died earlier this week.
The decision to kill the whales was made after they repeatedly returned to the beach after each attempt to shepherd them out to sea.
They were part of a pod of 65 whales sighted near Farewell Spit at the top of the South Island on Tuesday.
Of the 13 whales which became stranded then, five died on the first night and eight more resisted attempts to move them out to sea. –AFP
