A young porpoise rescued after it became stranded on a rock in Saanich Inlet north of Victoria is recovering at the Vancouver Aquarium's Marine Mammal Rescue Centre.
It is not known why the adult male porpoise stranded, but officials said it could have been stuck by a boat, chased by a predator such as a killer whale or could be suffering from an unknown illness.
