The whale has been euthanised after it developed breathing difficulties while being transferred by road to the coast, the local French authority has said. ‘Despite an unprecedented rescue operation for the beluga, we are sad to announce the death of the cetacean,’ the prefect of the Calvados department, said on Twitter.

Rescuers had hoped to transport the beluga, a protected species usually found in cold Arctic waters, to the coast in a refrigerated truck to then be released into the sea
