Lost beluga whale stuck in France river given ‘vitamin cocktail’ – BBC News

BBC News published this video item, entitled “Lost beluga whale stuck in France river given ‘vitamin cocktail’ – BBC News” – below is their description.

French officials desperately trying to rescue a beluga whale trapped in the River Seine have come up with a new strategy – a vitamin cocktail.

The visibly malnourished mammal was first spotted in the river on Tuesday, around 70km (44 miles) north of Paris.

After failed attempts to encourage it to swim out, the animal remains stuck and scientists worry for its health.

Rescuers hope the vitamin boost will help the lost whale regain its appetite and the energy needed to return to sea.
