Pilot Whale Washes Ashore on Long Beach in Rockport, MA
December 19, 2012
Gloucester Times: The shores of Long Beach are largely void of people this time of year, but a second dead whale has now washed up along the town’s shoreline.
A small pilot whale, approximately 10 to 15 feet, was reported to the Rockport Police Department at 9:17 on Tuesday morning, with police officials quickly notifying the New England Aquarium as well. A volunteer staff member of the aquarium was sent out Tuesday to photograph the whale.
