Whale Washes Up Near Rehoboth Beach

 

Earlier this morning a large whale washed up onto the beach at Henlopen Acres just above Rehoboth beach.  Suzanne Thurman from MERR is on scene right now with DNREC trying to figure out how they can move it to the state park and do a necropsy.  Suzanne said this is a humpback whale and because of that NOAA requires certain procedures be taken.  They can actually identify the whale by its tail.  They keep track of all of the whales they identify, especially stranded ones.  This one was hit by a boat prop ad that could have been after . . .
