LONG BEACH, Wash. – Two whales washed up along the Long Beach Peninsula after high winds and heavy surf slammed the Oregon and Washington coastlines this past week.
A sperm whale and a baby gray whale were found dead along the beach, along with one stellar sea lion.
Experts will be conducting necropsies to determine what killed the mammals.
Several birds were also found dead on the beach and two were alive, but injured.
The Marine Mammal Stranding Network rescued the two birds that were hurt during the storm. Officials said those birds would be rehabilitated and then re-released back into the wild.
