Live Update on Condition of Severely Injured, Rare, Beached Whale in South Mississippi

An update on a story we shared with you recently on News 25 Today when a beached, rare melon-headed whale was rescued from one of South Mississippi’s barrier islands.

The whale was clinging to life when they brought it into Gulfport’s Institute for Marine Mammal studies for treatment, but its initial critical condition has now improved and it appears the whale is on the mend.

News 25’s Kristen Anzuini got a live update Monday morning from Dr. Debra Moore with the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies in Gulfport.
