More than 50 pilot whales have died and authorities are racing to save dozens more after a mass stranding on a beach in Western Australia. The pod was first spotted about 100 metres off the coast at Cheynes Beach recently, tightly clustered in what witnesses say was an unusual sight. Once the whales began beaching themselves on the shore, wildlife authorities launched an emergency response effort in a bid to save them. Some 51 whales died overnight, with authorities trying to return the surviving 46 out to sea the next day. What do you think LiveTribers? Why have more than 50 pilot whales died in Western Australia?
