Dead 43-foot whale washes up on beach at New Jersey shore

The whale, which Schoelkopf believes to be an endangered Sei whale but couldn't be sure because of the decomposed state of the whale's carcass, washed up in the Chadwick Beach section of Toms River on Wednesday. For the same reasons, he said, it will be hard to determine how the whale died.

A large, 43-foot-long whale that washed up on a Toms River beach on Wednesday was likely killed by a ship.

A 43-foot long whale that washed ashore in Toms River has been dismembered and prepared for disposal.

Authorities roped the animal off with crime scene tape to keep a crowd of onlookers at a distance. Public works crews then used front-end loaders to drag and carry the pieces away. He says it was first reported dead three days ago by a cruise ship 13 miles off New York City.

They are typically found in the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific oceans.

The 40-foot whale had been rolling in the surf since Tuesday night but center staff could not get it out of the water due to risks from the surf and sharks that followed the whale's carcass, Schoelkopf told APP.com.

This is the third instance of a dead whale washing up on a New Jersey shore this year.
