Beachgoer’s discovered the body today of a dead baby Gray Whale that washed up on the beach just south of Lost Creek – just south of the Newport Airport.

Jim Rice of the Stranded Mammal Network said the dead whale was spotted floating off Yaquina Head yesterday and finally beached this morning near Lost Creek. Rice said it appears that the baby whale was mauled by Orcas and drowned so they could feed on it. Orcas go for whale tongue as the photo clearly demonstrates.

Rice said the whale was buried near the beach using a back-hoe and a bulldozer.
