Blue Whale Death Appears as Possible Ship Strike

Marine-mammal scientists converged on the remains of a 50-foot-long blue whale towed to a beach south of Ragged Point on Monday, Oct. 12. Marine veterinarians said it had a fractured skull and vertebra and hemorrhaging muscle tissue, most likely the result of being struck by a ship.
