Dead whale washes ashore in Pacifica, 10th in Bay Area this year


The 10th dead whale to wash onto Bay Area beaches this year was found in Pacifica on Tuesday morning.

The Pacifica Police Department was notified of a whale carcass at Shelter Cove around 9:30 a.m. but did not send its officers to investigate because it was “quite a hike,” Capt. Chris Clements said.

Instead, they advised the Marin Headlands-based Marine Mammal Center to journey to Shelter Cove to analyze the remains of the whale. Center officials were not immediately available to comment on the latest case.
