Dead Whale Found in Brooklyn

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.
