Blunt trauma revealed as cause of death for two right whales

Blunt trauma was found to be a cause of death for at least two right whales.  Three of six carcasses were brought to Norway, PEI for post-mortems after being found in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.  The Marine Animal Response Society adds it’s too early to rule out anything beyond blunt trauma for the two whales, and the third was killed by entanglement.
