Sighting Description: All’alba alcuni turisti videro, a circa due chilometri dalla riva, una massa scura galleggiante. Alcuni di essi, con un piccolo gommone, si sono avvicinati all’oggetto. Questi è risultato essere un grosso pesce di circa 10 metri. Una volta tirato a riva il pesce è stato identificato come un cetaceo ed in particolare un’orca di sesso maschile, che è stata ancorata agli scogli. Nei giorni successivi la carcassa in putrefazione ha cominciato ad emanare un cattiva odore e quindi è stata ributtata in mare, dove le correnti l’hanno trascinata via.      

Sighting Description: At dawn some tourists saw a dark floating mass approximately two kilometers from the shore. Some of them, in a small rubber dinghy, approached the object. The object turned out to be a large fish of approximately 10 meters. Once it was pulled to the shore, the fish was identified as a cetacean and, in particular, an orca (killer whale) of male gender. It was anchored to the rocks. In the days following, the carcass began to rot and send out a bad smell, therefore, it was thrown back into the sea where the currents dragged it away.
