Although it is never a happy moment to see a dead animal, I have to acknowledge how privileged I am to have seen this in person.
Every Saturday morning, I wake up early and run with my group by the ocean. During these early morning runs, I have been lucky enough to observe all kinds of beautiful scenery and animals such as red foxes, raccoons, cardinals, pelicans, gulls, you name it. But this whale is a first.
The whale did not die because he was beached. His cause of death is unknown but she was already dead when he got washed up. Below you’ll find more info.
