Beached Grey Whale Lower Trestles

A 40-foot grey whale carcass washed up at Lower Trestles in Orange County on Sunday April 24, 2016. Workers used heavy equipment to chop up the whale and haul it away to a local landfill. They believe the death was natural but are still waiting results for the official determination. A second way who died out at sea near the same area started to decompose rather quickly and larger pieces of it washed away a couple miles away.
