Stranded Whale Saved

Once in a while, we get animals being trapped in our shallow waters. This time, it's a whale and I'm glad the stranded whale has been helped out to sea and I hope it's doing fine. Poor thing. See below for the full story.

FREEING LUULUMBO: Tourists, rescuers and Pulau Gaya villagers trying to free a Bryde's whale, known to Kadazans as Luulumbo, that was trapped in shallow waters between Pulau Gaya and Pulau Sapi off Kota Kinabalu on Friday. After numerous attempts, divers and a tugboat managed to set it free. It was towed to deeper waters at 7.45pm.

  1. Maybe the whale needs to upgrade its GPS system.

  2. Good thing there were no Japanese or Norwegian fishing boats nearby.


  3. Pandabonium, that's a good one. LOL!

    MM, no!!! They wouldn't dare, with so many nature conservation people around. They'd be dinner themselves! haha..
