The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Endangered Beluga whale dies after lengthy rescue attempt from the river Seine” – below is their description.

A starving beluga whale stranded in France’s river Seine for more than a week has been put down after it fell sick while being transported towards the sea in a risky rescue operation on Wednesday.

The animal was euthanised after he developed breathing difficulties and was seen to be in pain.

Officials in northern France had warned the 1,800-pound animal, a protected species that lives in cold Arctic waters, was in poor health and worryingly thin.
