Dead humpback whale found in New Jersey marina

A dead humpback whale was discovered wedged under a dock in Middle Township, New Jersey,

according to Jim and Debbie Mooers, co-founders of Grassy Sound Marina, who discovered the whale over the weekend.

It had a foul odor.

The creature was missing a head and mostly eaten away, so determining the cause of death was impossible, Schoelkopf said.

But Mooers said the juvenile whale was most likely sick or hit by a propeller.

New Jersey State Police Sergeant Karen Fahy said she heard reports on Friday and Saturday

of a dead whale offshore, and it is most likely the same one found in Middle Township.
