At least 13 pilot whales were beached Tuesday on a remote New Zealand coastline and conservation officials were desperately battling to prevent another 50 from reaching the shore.

It is the second mass stranding in a week at the remote Farewell Spit, at the top of the South Island, which has become notorious as a whale graveyard.

Maybe the Japanese can "study" them?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

After repeated failed attempts to shepherd out to sea eight pilot whales stranded on a remote beach, where five others had died, conservationists decide to humanely euthanise them to relieve suffering.

Now they can sell the meat to Japan for more culinary research.

Most notable among the findings: "Does eating euthanized whale meat make you feel sleepy?"
