Report Details

The Siuslaw News reports that a 28-foot male humpback whale has washed ashore on this mile. It was spotted last weekend by a Coast Guard flyover. Apparently the whale died after something bit its tongue off and it was unable to eat. The removal plan is to "let nature take its course." Beach rangers ask that everyone be respectful of the whale's remains.
