A 37-foot humpback whale washed ashore in Westhampton on Sunday morning, an animal rescue group said. 

It was the first large animal to strand in New York this year, the Atlantic Marine Conservation Society said. 

The dead female whale was found in Cupsoge County Park. The whale would remain in place for at least a day while the group coordinated heavy equipment to move it, said spokesperson Rachel Bosworth.
