Scare Tactic Used on Wayward Whales
Advertisements [?]

RIO VISTA, Calif. - Scientists hope recordings of orcas attacking a mother whale and her calf will persuade a pair of ailing humpbacks meandering in a freshwater river to head back toward the ocean.
***
Scientists were hoping the sound of blood-thirsty orcas might frighten the whales back into the ocean.

***

The challenge facing the scientists was to encourage the whales to move quickly without causing them anxiety that could create more physical stress.





Suggestion: show them a picture of a beached whale
