30 Nov 2017, KwaZulu-Natal: 30 November 2017 Humpback whale washed up - Blythedale beach

A humpback whale calf of approximately 5.5 - 6 meters washed up on Blythedale beach yesterday. According to a Sharks board spokesperson, the whale would have been migrating back to the Antarctic.

Whales migrate to colder waters to follow food sources.
If the calf was too weak to complete the journey it would have been left behind by the mother.

There were no marks found on the carcass.
Local authorities are currently on the beach and discussing the removal of the carcass.
