    Beached Killer Whale in Hawaii

     

    We heard there was a beached killer whale down at Brennecke's beach,in Poipu,  and took off to go see if it was still there!

    Not something you see EVER in hawaii. Brought both video and still camera. The scene had about 1000 people crowded around a fenced off area on the beach and road trying to get a glance at the whale. The whale seemed tired, or very sick as it  was being pushed back and forth by the waves that were coming in. It was being pushed up against some reef & rocks and you could see that it had many scrapes from the reef on it's belly, which were bleeding. It wasn't even trying to get out, although it would spout water from the top of its blow hole from time to time so we knew it was still alive. Whale was lassoed and euthanized then picked up by 2 excavators and put on a flat bed truck.
