PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — A dead whale, believed by marine biologists to be a humpback, has washed ashore in Northern California.
KSBW-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2uNlua8 ) the whale appeared Saturday at Pebble Beach near Bird Rock Point.
Marine biologist Katlyn Taylor called in the sighting.
A necropsy will help marine biologists determine the cause of death.
In Southern California, crews managed to mostly free a juvenile humpback whale that was entangled in fishing line. Officials say the whale is swimming freely but still has some line caught in its mouth.
