La baleine à bosse échouée près de Varennes?

The humpback whale that spent several days wandering in the port of Montreal would have failed this morning in the area of Verchères, near Varennes, east of Montreal, an area where the water is less deep.

A marine pilot has circulated these images on her behalf Facebook the whale lifeless in the river water.

The Group for research and education on marine mammals is immediately put in the direction since, according to them, there seems to be no doubt that it is a whale carcass.

The Group for research and education on marine mammals (GREMM) is immediately put in the direction since, according to them, there seems to be no doubt that it is a whale carcass.

As to the cause of the death, Marie-Eve Muller, spokesman for the GREMM, indicates that many questions remain unanswered.

“Necropsies can help to have answers on what may have cause the death of the animal,” she says.

“It really is by analyzing the carcass that we are going to have details.”

The whale had amazed hundreds of people as it spent several days in front of the Old Port of Montreal and close to the Jacques-Cartier bridge.
