This has just appeared in my local news and radio, a young Orca was found up the side of a Donegal mountain in Ireland with the only serviceable dirt track several hundred meters away, and 2 miles from coastline. Did someone drop it off?

Can't read it, it says I have to be a member?
This sounds like an interesting story though.

Thank you.
Well, even with that small bit, it sure sounds like someone killed it and dumped the body. How sad.

Just in case anyone else has issues with accessing the site,
here is the text......



"Exclusive: Mystery surrounds the discovery of what appears to be a baby killer whale almost 3kms inland off the Donegal coastline.

The dead creature was discovered at Meenbanad near Burtonport.

The animal, which has the distinctive black and white markings of the whale, has injuries to its head but it is not known how it died.

There are strong suspicions the whale was dumped in the area.

The area where the creature has been found in is known as The Leifin which has a council waterworks close-by.

Local woman Niamh Bonner, who came across the creature, told Donegal Daily people are baffled as to how the creature ended up in the hills.

“It is not like it is even beside a road and was dumped off a lorry.

“It had to be dragged there because it is about 100 yards off the road. But The Leifin is up in the hills about two miles from any coastline.

“It’s a bit of a mystery as to how it got there,” she said.

Dozens of people have been visiting the area where the whale was found earlier this week."

Seems like a good guess to me as whales cannot walk. Probably illegal fishing or something

Is that a knife sticking out of the wound?? Looks like its been rolled over, as the blood stain is a few feet away.

If extraterrestrials are "abducting" different species on earth, why bother? There are many theories about why ETs are abducting, all are conjecture based on an "if" scenario.

Also, if these ETs are thousands of years older and more advanced than human beings and have the technology to travel light years through interstellar space, how could they miscalculate their abduction mission to the point of having to dump a killer whale over the land somewhere?

There are a lot of ifs in this story and I suspect this one is due to an aborted human plot to sell wildlife on the black market. Just my opinion of course.

I'm kind of leaning toward maybe a waterspout, or something of that nature being responsible...If it is human cruelty, the coppers will find tire tracks an stuff, I'm sure...

BBC - 9 June - with video



9 June 2012 Last updated at 16:56 Help An Irish fisherman has filmed what is believed to be a pod of killer whales off the coast of County Donegal.

Kevin Doherty was on a fishing trip with a friend in Lough Swilly on Wednesday when they made the unusual sighting.

He told BBC district journalist Nicola Weir that their boat was "surrounded" by six of the creatures.

I just find it interesting that killer whales have been found/spotted near Ireland. I never knew they came that far I thought they were more interested in polar regions. This will be nice to tell the mrs who asked me the other day if killer Whales actually kill things, she thought they lived on plankton

I'm not sure but check out the whale or porpoise's pectoral fins. Aren't orca pectoral fins sorta paddle shaped and rounded. These look pointy more like a porpoise or dolphin. looks like a dalls or spectacled porpoise. But those are really rare and one is only found in the north pacific and the other in the antarctic. Could be some other sort of porpoise too. Might not be an orca.

Pretty strange how it got there though.

the head injuries are from it being dropped
now, what dropped it?
it'll get interesting if no-one claims responsibility.
or could it have been a tornado?
i know tornado's are rare here in Ireland, but they do occur.
if no-one speaks up, im going with tornado

Well, having zoomed the living crap out of the image, I am pretty confident that there is not a knife sticking out of the corpse, as I believe that the white shape in the area near the wound is merely skin colouring on the body itself.

However, while I was zoomed in, I took a look at the area immediately surrounding the body. It appears as if the body was not "dragged" to the place where it was dumped, since the loose pack of small stones, of which the terrain there is made, does not appear to have been disturbed in a suggestive way.

However, there appears, in my esitmation, to be a secondary wound, where the body begins to thicken after the tail section, to quite away back toward the tail on the underside of the body. Also, since this is not an adult whale, it is not a total impossibility that it was carried there by human hands, since it looks like it would be perhaps a four man lift, five at a stretch.

I would hazard a guess at the idea that a fishing vessel may have been involved in the death, and that the body was disposed of away from the coastline by those fishermen for some reason. Perhaps the people involved had been known to be less than careful with local sealife, in pursuit of thier livelihoods. Who knows. All I can say is that the body must have been carried to the location in which it was photographed, and that it appears to have more than one wound.

Doesn't look like a killer whale, fins and tail are the wrong shape so are the markings.

It is not a Killer Whale period. It is a Dall's Porpoise, the end. Now how it got there is your problem.
