Stranded whale still stick in Klamath River

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

The call of nature isn't helping to budge a gray whale stuck in the Klamath River.

Rescuers played killer whale sounds through speakers on a boat, hoping to get the whale to move. It just didn't work.

The whale and her calf wandered into the river near Eureka in late June. The calf went back to the ocean on Saturday, but the mother is still stuck.
