This is really sad and scary to be honest.  It just happened a week ago, and 3 times before that – all since December.

Here are the details from 6abc:

For the fourth time since the beginning of December, a dead whale has washed up in South Jersey.  The remains of a humpback whale were found in the North Brigantine Natural Area in Brigantine, New Jersey around 5 p.m. Thursday.  

According to the Marine Mammal Stranding Center, the whale was 20 to 25 feet long and doesn’t appear to be fully grown.

They say plans are underway to perform a necropsy on Sunday with the help of several agencies.

The Marine Mammal Stranding Center says this is part of a years-long “unusual mortality event” declared by NOAA in 2016.

This is the second massive whale to wash ashore within 15 days at the Jersey Shore! It’s the 4th whale in a month. How sad.

Here are the details from the Inquirer:

A 30-foot juvenile humpback whale washed up on the beach in Atlantic City on Saturday morning, the second time in 15 days a young whale has been swept ashore in the casino town.

This time, officials with the Marine Mammal Stranding Center decided not to bury the whale immediately, as they did on Dec. 23, when a similar-looking baby humpback whale washed ashore near the Tropicana.
