But would you be able to observe 'the bloody thing trying to get out of the box' whilst getting medical attention on the third degree lacerations to hands, arms, and face, which you would have received from putting it in there in the first place? :wink:

A very young baby humpback whale stranded itself right on the beach at the Gold Coast yesterday and a digger was brought in to dig a trench to help drag it back to the ocean.... in the hopes that its call would reunite it with its mother. (alot of whales off our coast right now) as whales can hear for a long way.

They have had helicopters out checking and they THINK they have spotted the calf with its mother. Lots of mums and bubs out there. Hopefully the little one is safe and well now with Mum.
