‘Little hope’ of saving beluga whale stranded in Seine river


RENNES, France — Hopes of saving a malnourished beluga whale that has swum up the Seine river were receding on Sunday, but rescuers said they have ruled out “euthanasia” for now. “He has to be moved in the coming 24-48 hours, these conditions are not good for him,” Sea Shepherd France head Lamya Essemlali told AFP. Specialists held out “little hope” for the visibly underweight whale, Essemlali said. Small spots that were reported on its pale skin on Saturday were likely due to the fresh water, Sea Shepherd said. It is only the second recorded sighting of a beluga in a French river since 1948, when a fisherman in the estuary of the Loire river found one in his nets.
