Sperm Whale pod beached on Italian shore

This year, sorrowfully, there has been many whale and dolphin strandings as you may see in this summarizing post:

However no beaching happened in the Mediterranean Sea. Until now. This Thursday a pod of nine sperm whales, stranded on the beaches of Lago di Varano, a beautiful laguna in the Gargano promontory (which is the "spur" in the boot-shaped Italian peninsula). My friend Vladimiro Formicola, who lives not far from there kindly sent me some pictures. Two of the nine sperm whales managed to swim back to deep waters, but the other seven died. When Vladimiro arrived the poor whales (measuring about 12m) were already decaying and biologists were taking some tissue samples in order to try to find explanations for this tragedy. Infact, even if that zone of Adriatic Sea is caracterized by shallow waters, strandings are extremely rare, especially for whales of that size, occurring once every 150-200 years.
