MONTROSE, Ala. (AP) — Veterinarians have euthanized a sperm whale that had been stranded in Mobile Bay and was no longer able to swim.

The Dauphin Island Sea Lab Marine Mammal Research Program said the whale was sedated and euthanized Wednesday morning.

The group said euthanasia was the best option for the animal who was suffering and unable to swim and survive any longer in the wild.
