Whale Washes Ashore in Palisades

30-foot whale carcass cleared from Will Rogers beach

By Sam Catanzaro 

Over the weekend, a whale washed carcass washed ashore in Pacific Palisades.

According to the Los Angeles County Fire Department Lifeguard department, the approximately 30-foot whale carcass washed ashore on Saturday, July 6 at around 8:15 a.m. between lifeguard tower 14 and 15. This is right to the south of where the department’s Junior Lifeguard Will Rogers Beach program takes place.

It is currently unknown the whale’s species.

On Sunday a rescue group took samples of the whale’s vertebrae and blubber as part of a necropsy.

The Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors worked with a third-party contractor to “ensure safe and environmentally conscious removal of the carcass.”

Palisades News has reached out to the County requesting more information. Check back for an updated version of this article.
