A dead whale was found on the Brooklyn side of New York Harbor Monday morning, police say.
The whale was found near Pier 4 around 9:30 a.m. and towed by the NYPD to the New Jersey side of the harbor. The New York Post reported it was 30 feet long.
It was loaded onto a barge, and authorities are waiting for the Riverhead Foundation to evaluate it.
A necropsy will be conducted to determine how the whale died.
