AN injured Pygmy Sperm Whale was rescued on the Holiday Inn beach in Montego Bay Sunday by a team from Dolphin Cove with the assistance of the hotel staff and Montego Bay Marine Lab experts.
Marilyn Burrowes, Dolphin Cove co-owner, said they received calls that there was a "porpoise" on the Holiday Inn Hotel beach.
A team, led by Dolphin Cove's in-house veterinarian Dr Miska Sennett and Marine Mammal Specialist Delloy Peharie of the Half Moon Lagoon, responded to find the whale in distress.
"The injured whale had facial scratches and appeared to have been stranded on the beach from Saturday evening," Burrowes said.
The mammal, which Peharie estimated to be 350-400 lbs heavy and nine feet long, was treated, fed and then guided out to sea.
"At sea, his pod was seen hovering as if waiting for his return," Burrowes stated.
"We feel great that we were able to send him back to the pod. It seemed as if he had crashed into a reef or someone had crashed into him," she added.
