Mystery surrounds the discovery of what appears to be a baby killer whale almost 3kms inland off the Donegal coastline.
The dead creature was discovered at Meenbanad near Burtonport.
The animal has the distinctive black and white markings of the whale but others claim it could be a species of dolphin with similar markings.
The creature has injuries to its head but it is not known how it died or how it ended up so far from the sea. There are strong suspicions the whale was dumped in the area by Aliens, as numerous reports of UFOs have been reported in that area for the last few weeks, local authorities are investigating.
