OCEAN CITY, Md. - A beached whale that drew a crowd of onlookers Sunday morning along an Ocean City beach has died.
The juvenile sperm whale was found around 6:45 a.m., the Baltimore Sun reported.
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources and Ocean City police will remove the marine mammal from the beach. Researchers will then conduct a necropsy to determine its cause of death.
“As you can imagine, this has been a challenging day for not only Aquarium responders and partners, but all those on the beach throughout the morning,” an aquarium spokesperson told the Sun.
