Official: Endangered whale beached in NYC is dead
NEW YORK (AP) — A wildlife official says an endangered whale has died after getting stranded on a beach in a coastal enclave of New York City.
Mendy Garron of the National Marine Fisheries Service says officials found the 60-foot finback whale dead Thursday.
The animal was first discovered Wednesday morning beached on the bay side of Breezy Point, a Queens neighborhood ravaged by Superstorm Sandy. The whale was alive but severely emaciated.
