A resident of a small community on Cape Breton's west coast says about 25 people rallied to try and save 16 beached pilot whales today after they became stuck on the rocky shores of St. George's Bay. Linden MacIntyre, a former journalist who lives about a kilometre from the bay in Judique, Nova Scotia, says he believes the whales were beached early this morning as the tide went out. (MacIntyre says 11 whales survived, but five died, including a small whale and a larger whale that was about three metres long.)
