Beached whale found in Gloucester


The state announced Tuesday it’s stepping in to help remove a beached whale from the north side of the York River in Gloucester Point. The whale was discovered near Allen Island sometime on Saturday.

A stranding response team representative from the Virginia Aquarium tells the state is trying to find a landfill that will take the whale. The state will be coordinating the effort, which involves placing the 25 foot female humpback whale on a flatbed and towing it from the scene.
