Dead whale washes up on Revere Beach

RAW VIDEO: A dead whale washed ashore on Revere Beach

REVERE, Mass. — A dead whale was found washed up on Revere Beach on Friday morning.

Massachusetts State Police tweeted Friday morning that a 25-foot long whale washed up on Revere Beach. The scene was secured.

The aquarium says this is the same whale that was seen recently in Gloucester and Cohasset. On September 7, a whale watch off the Gloucester shore spotted the dead whale. A few days later on Sept. 9, the same whale washed up on Cohasset. Cohasset had approval to tow the dead whale to sea.

Over a week after the whale was last seen in Cohasset, the juvenile humpback washed up on Revere Beach.

Aquarium specialists tell Boston 25 News they are not responding because they already took samples from the whale at the previous incidents.

State police say they plan for the whale to be buried in place once tide recedes.
