Lost Whales Halt Near California Bridge

BENICIA, Calif. – Two whales lost in the Sacramento River once again halted near a busy bridge, a day after making considerable progress in their quest to return to the Pacific Ocean.
Though they have stopped in a relatively narrow section of the river for the past week, the whales stopped Monday in a much wider waterway teeming with ship traffic.
The shift came after an encouraging spurt in which the pair traveled about 24 miles in 24 hours.
“Right now they are meandering, but we’re hoping that they get it in their minds to keep going,” said Rod McInnis, a spokesman for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
