A 30 feet long whale washed ashore at on Mumbai’s Juhu Beach on thursday night. Late night joggers on the beach saw the whale and notified the authorities. Officials say the whale has been dead for 2-3 days.
The whale which weighs around four tonnes was Bryde’s whale. Cranes have been called to remove the remains of the animal.
This is the second biggest whale to have beached along the Maharashtra coast. Last year, a blue whale washed up at Alibaugh and died after a 10-hour struggle to push her back into the sea.
