Sanchez, Dominican Republic.- Dozens of onlookers gathered at the shore in Sánchez township, northeastern Samaná province to observe a beached humpback whale, reportedly rescued by local fishermen.

Twitter traffic was frenzied as the authorities were contacted to prevent the whale’s death, by helping it to return to deeper water.

According to a @ WilRafD tweet, local fishermen managed to drag the whale to open water.

Each year humpback whales arrive in the warm waters around Samana to mate and birth calves.

Before the authorities returned the whale to deep water, they should have checked it's contents..................to see if it was being used to smuggle cocaine into the DR.

The PLD and its Boss, Narco Lie-onel, is too busy TAXing, Stealing and Giving our GOLD away to International Polluters like Barrick "Stold" in 97to3% contracts against the Dominican People, to be concerned with protecting wildlife and the enviorment!

It is worse than "SHAMEFULL" it is CRIMINAL!

Regardless it's good news to see Dominicans doing something for the native fauna.

Manito "JOSE H CON LIE-ONEL 2016 or Margo" when Saint Danilo's administration is not even a year old might be considered by some just a "tad bit diminished and obsessive" as well, wouldn't you think?
