    Lost whale calf bonds with yacht, tries to suckle


    SYDNEY, Australia - Australian media say a lost humpback whale calf has bonded with a yacht it seems to think is its mother.

    The 1- to 2-month-old calf was first sighted Sunday in waters off north Sydney, and on Monday tried to suckle from a yacht, which it would not leave.

    Awww, I hope it finds it's mother or another pod. It's so large next to the yacht and so sad it can not be fed via human intervention as it is not weaned...
