An absolute disaster has struck New Zealand as around 400 whales have been found thrashing tales in distress and stranded on a beach as New Zealanders rush to help
A witness described the horror, "You could hear the sounds of splashing, of blowholes being cleared, of sighing," she said. "The young ones were the worst. Crying is the only way to describe it." The adult and baby whale carcasses were strewn three or four deep in places for hundreds of yards, often rolled over on the sand with their tail fins still aloft.
