MANTEO, N.C. — At least 22 pilot whales (search) beached themselves on the coast early Saturday, and at least 17 of them died, officials said.

The whales were stranded along a five-mile stretch of land near Oregon Inlet in the northern Outer Banks, said Laura Engleby, spokeswoman for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

"We suspect there are more than 30" stranded whales, she said. "The sea conditions have been fluctuating, making it difficult to account for all of them."

It is not uncommon for pilot whales to beach themselves, but scientists do not know why. The pilot whale is a protected species but not endangered.

NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service was coordinating a recovery effort that involved biologists, Coast Guard crews and the National Park Service.

If biologists determine any of the whales are likely to survive, the Coast Guard will help move them back out to sea, said Petty Officer Donnie Brzuska.

Brzuska said mass strandings of pilot whales are not unusual in Florida and New England, but the stranding on the North Carolina coast was unusual.

I think humans worry too much about animals. Those whales were just washed up naturally, however if they do not know why those whales beach up... Then obviously its the Ocean that is being fucked up by the humans everyday (Chemicals, Poisons, Oil, etc.) This is a sad, sad world.

It is interesting to see how people deal with dead whales. However, I think people have come to realize TNT does not work very well. If you don't know what I am talking about I'll try and find a link to the video explaining...

I think that is needed Ensign, whales beach themselves all the time they probably had a reason, they know what they are doing that's what whales do.

Aren't you brefering to the wale that blows up in the middle of a street? They exploded on themselfs after a certain amount of time, since natural gasses begin to expend and will lead to an explosion send whale organs all over the place.

No, In the one I talks about theres a dead stranded whale on a beach and they decides to blow it up with TNT, a few seconds after the explosion it started to rain whale meat :lol:. Some cars even got destroyed of some big chuncks of meat.

Let me find it.
