The whale was in the process of dying when it washed ashore and is now dead.

Scientists from the Oregon State University Marine Biology department took samples from the whale and will be analyzing it on Thursday.

If you come across an injured sea creature on the beach, do not approach it, instead contact the Oregon Coast Aquarium at (541) 867-3474 or contact local authorities.
