I think when that happens they are trying to get away from something. They are close family units, but an entire unit would not beach themselves for one sick one. They are incredibly smart. They were fleeing something. This is LONG You must really be interested in the topic to read it. I believe this is the reason for some beachings, definitely not all.

not sure if this is the correct forum. 21 pilot whales have stranded on the shore at Staffin on Skye. They have managed to get 18 back out to sea one has died and I guess the others will be taken out when its possible. I wondered if this was just one maybe ill and the others coming into shore with it or if the navy are about there with sonar disrupting them? Just thought it was interesting.
