(VPlh- A harmless whale somebody shot for no apparent reason tried all day Monday to turn Long Beach Harbor into his personal hospital room before consenting to be towed out to sea. The mammal had big sad aes. and city officials viewed him with a mixture of s.vmpalhy and \-exation. Fearful be might die on Ihrar beach, they planned to destroy him today, if he didn 't leave. Dead niiales have a way of smelling awful in a warm jriace like Southern California, and it's hard to move them once they're securely beached. On tfadr sixth try Monday ni ^t. lifeguards got a line around the whale's tail, and towed it three miles out to sea. This time it didn 't come back. The California pOol whale, believed to wei^ about 1.500 pounds, barged into the harbor Monday morning. Lifeguard U. Bill Ward said inspection revealed the animal had a! bullet wound about 12 inches behind his blonde. Apparently finding it easier to breathe in shaUow water, the wtale made for the surf and by Monday night had frustrated five efforts by Ward and other life guards to escort him out to tea. Lifeguards made several efforts to pmnt the whale in the direction of the harbor entrance by tugging on its fins. "Finally we put a line behind his lateral fins and towed him with a rescue boat about a mile and a half out. nearly to the breakwater, but he slipped the rope and came back." Ward said. Pilot vrhales normally migrate south in the Pacific to the waters off the Mexican state of; Baja Califonua this time of! year. Ward speculated the whale bad been shot by somebody w4io mistook its fins for those of a shark. The djarcoal gray whale showed a preference for loUing in the surf about 100 yards oflshore. OccasJenaDy It would Wow water and seem revived. Then, drained of energy it would rtril oi'er on its ade, and drift A durable creahire under most conditions, the vUei whale is especially TofaMnUe to injuries aroinid his breathing apparatus. "We 're stiU kind of widjfnUy thinking he may be only temporarily sick." Ward sMd. *<We would like to see hmi so 00 his way after iccoveting. It 's! just like • pet dog." todlands Doily Foch Tuesdoy.
