After nearly 500 pilot whales were stranded on the Australian island of Tasmania, rescuers were able to free more animals by Saturday.

The competent authority announced that 108 of the total of around 470 marine mammals were rescued and brought into deeper waters. According to the helpers, no more live whales were seen in the bay.

The total number of pilot whales that died was given as 350. The carcasses were now to be dragged out to sea in boats.

About 470 pilot whales were stranded in several places in Macquarie Bay in the west of the island this week. The rescue attempts lasted several days.

The mass stranding is the largest in Australia to date. It surpasses one from 1996 when about 320 pilot whales hit the west coast. Whales strand quite often off Tasmania, but mostly far fewer animals are affected.
