SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Four dead gray whales were found in the Bay Area within the past week, The Marine Mammal Center said on Wednesday.
The first washed up exactly a week ago on Crissy Field. Then, another was found at Fitzgerald Marine Reserve in Moss Beach on Saturday. A third was found floating in San Francisco Bay, according to the center. The fourth whale washed ashore Muir Beach.
“Both whales found in the Bay were towed to a safe and secure location at Angel Island State Park,” the center said.
Scientists are set to perform a necropsy on the last whale Thursday afternoon to find out why it died.
