Death on the beach

A sad story about the failure to rescue and rehabilitate a porpoise on the British coast despite the efforts of many was recently reported at Burnham-on-Sea. However, perhaps even sadder is the fact that this animal is possibilities of life have being curtailed by the insidious encroachment of animal-rights into the animal welfare movement in the UK.

Not many people are aware that since the demise via regulation of dolphinaria in the UK there is no available facilities that are able (or more disturbingly willing) to try and rehabilitate stranded cetaceans on the British coast. Of course, many of these animals may well be too large for any sustained and dedicated rehabilitation process but certainly smaller cetaceans such as the harbour porpoise and smaller dolphins this prospect is viable.
