The authorities in Kuwait managed to retrieve a dead whale, about 35 feet long, after it was reported that it was in the Heshan area near Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Bridge.
After it was recovered, the Environment Public Authority, the Ports Corporation and the Public Authority for Agriculture and Municipalities, in cooperation with the Kuwaiti Coast Guard operations, pulled it away and transported it by car, as the municipality will deal with his body.
A video clip recorded the moment the dead whale was transported and picked up by Coast Guard operations.
The dead whale was dragged to the port of Shuwaikh, where it was towed from berth (19A) with the help of an operations team and divers, and it was tied and lifted by cranes.
The length of the dead whale is about 35 feet, and its weight is not less than 10 tons, which made the process of pulling and lifting it not easy.
The Kuwaiti Environment Authority attributed the cause of the death of this species of whales to their old age, illness or starvation, due to the scarcity of food they eat, especially the small crustaceans found only in the oceans, as well as their collision with ships that pass in shipping lines.
