Before approaching America's Independence day, a very sad news knocked the doors of environmentalists, marine guardians and those who love whales very much. In Los Angeles, California, a large whale carcass went lying on the sea shore last Friday on Dockweiler beach, some kilometers near Los Angeles International Airport's west end.
What's even worse is that this giant whale, even if we commonly see its kind in the movies, it contributes a lot to the ecological balance of the marine ecosystem. It's actually a Humpback whale, a species of its kind that is widely known for flapping the water floor too hard and breaching through seas with grace.
This specific Humpback whale made a lot of noise online and it's getting a lot of attention. As of this writing, the whale was already towed off the shore. But to make the details clearer for us, let's look a little closer.
40-feet Humpback whale was found lifeless just yesterday, and it was assumed that the whale was already dead 24 hours before it landed on shore.
Scientists recorded that the carcass is somehow in good condition by the time of examination.
Witnesses had to cover their noses.
When whale's fluid started to leak, media alerted people not to step even on the narrow water floor because the liquid has spread, and it can cause health hazards.
Based on the observations on recent sightings, they see some whale lice sabotaging Wally's body.
Between June to August in 2015, this humpback whale was already swimming in the vicinity. There were photographic records on the sighting, and as they've compared the tail images, the claims were really true. Actually, this marine creature was given the name Wally.
Scientists need to determine the probability of biotoxins present in the whale. By getting such samples, these experts can synthesize its cause of death.
They carried the dead to the sea in order to put the stench away from the crowds.
