The whales were found stranded Thursday afternoon in three separate areas in shallow Gulf of Mexico waters near Cudjoe Key. Two animals died and rescuers have begun searching for others outside the pen that were spotted before darkness fell.
Officials hope to eventually relocate any surviving whales to the Marine Mammal Conservancy's rehabilitation facility in Key Largo.
