After the adult sperm whale died at Patchs beach, South Ballina, officials from Crown Land, National Parks and ORRCA have tried to remove the 54-tonne, 17-metre marine mammal from the beach. Today, vets from Dolphin Marine Rescue performed a post mortem on the animal. The jaw and teeth from the animal were stolen overnight.
AN OPERATION to remove the sperm whale off a Ballina beach is going into its third day.
