Second whale found dead in Loch Carnan

Quote
A second pilot whale has been found dead in a Hebridean loch after experts feared more than 60 of the animals had been at risk of becoming beached.
The pod had left the shallow waters of Loch Carnan in South Uist on Saturday, but returned later that night.
They have now headed out of the area - but an animal welfare charity confirmed another whale's body had been found.
Tests on a body found earlier suggested the female died from disease, not because it was stranded on rocks.
Marine experts said the rest of the pod had now left the loch and appeared to be heading south.
