Russia: Baby Bowhead whale left stranded and injured in Sea of Okhotsk

A baby bowhead whale was stranded at the bay of the Sea of Okhotsk near Bolshoi Shantar Island in eastern Russia, early on Thursday.

The young animal swam into the bay but was unable to leave due to the low tide. Trying to escape from the area, the whale reportedly injured himself.

Hopes were high for the next tide to move the animal into the sea. However, the stream was not strong enough for the baby whale to escape.
