HUIZHOU, March 15, 2017 - The corpse of a stranded sperm whale is lifted at a dock in Huizhou Harbor in Huizhou, south China's Guangdong Province, March 15, 2017. On the morning of March 12, the 12-meter-long whale was spotted trapped in fishing nets in the waters of Daya Bay. After the whale was freed from the nets, authorities and zoologists tried to guide it back to the deep sea. However, it continued to swim in shallow waters off Shenzhen and Huizhou cities and was confirmed to have been stranded near the wharf on Tuesday afternoon. Experts speculated that, rather than being lost, the whale intentionally entered shallow waters due to its bad health.
