Law enforcement reports that a dead whale has washed up on the beach near Patterson Park off Highway 101, just south of Waldport. Oregon State Police troopers are enroute.

It’s apparent from Ken Gagne’s photo that it’s been in the water a long time. Anyone who can identify the species and a possible age, please email Dave@NewsLincolnCounty.com

A marine scientist checked in and said it looks like a baby Gray whale that was mauled by Killer Whales. He said the Gray whales are migrating at this time of the year with their young. And the Orcas do what they do to acquire the protein rich parts of the calves and leave the rest for scavengers. He said the slash marks are consistent with Killer Whale teeth. He said it looks like it had been in the water for about two weeks.
