The baby whale

To continue the story on baby whale Colin:

"The humpback whale calf had been trying to suckle from boats, which it apparently mistook for his parent.
The plight of the starving two-tonne animal, dubbed Colin, has captivated Australia since last weekend.
The whale was first given a sedative, then a lethal dose of anaesthetic, which took 10 minutes."

It is so so sad.
