Dead Whale Washes Ashore

Currently in Malibu, a dead whale sits on the edge of the beach waisting away.  No governemnt agency in California has taken action so far to remove this large rotting carass. 

The whale drew a large crowd one Friday locals report.  The whale was reported to be around 40-foot-long and 40,000-pounds when alive but was considered to be a juvenile as they grow to much larger lengths such as 85 feet and 80 tons.

Soon the the huge whale carcuss will bones and blubber.  Califonia Wildlife believe it was hit by a ship.  This particular whale was a fin whale and is considered endangered.  Currently around 2,300 live along the West Coast of the United States.
