People gather around a beached humpback whale that died during low tide in White Rock, British Columbia, on Tuesday, June 12, 2012. Department of Fisheries and Oceans marine mammal co-ordinator Paul Cottrell said the severely emaciated young whale was first spotted as water receded from the sandy, tidal flats early Tuesday morning. Cottrell said the 8 to 10-meter long juvenile died just hours after beaching itself.
