Animal News: Cute Beached Whale Found in Longport; Horse Died on Rider in Bucks Co.

Earlier today, I informed you of a cat who tripped a wire and caused a power outage for 100 people. To continue an Inauguration Day tradition over here at the Scoop, here’s some more news from the animal kingdom.

Today in Longport, a small, cute, beached whale was found on Dog Beach, recovering from what appears to be cuts from a boat propeller. It has been taken to the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine.

And in Upper Black Eddy, a woman was walking her horse (or maybe the horse was walking her), when it keeled over and died, trapping her underneath. She sustained non-life threatening injuries. [Inquirer]
