Dead Whale Washes Up On Santa Barbara County Beach

Posted on Friday, October 19, 2012 2:19pm

A dead whale has turned up on a Santa Barbara County beach.

The young gray whale turned up in the surf in Goleta’s More Mesa area. Experts examined the whale, and say it didn’t appear to have been hit by a ship, or die as the result of other human interaction.

Plans call for the carcass to be towed out to sea, so it won’t end up back on local beaches.
