Blue Whale in San Diego Found Floating Dead 

Blue Whale in San Diego found floating dead. A 35 foot long blue whale was found floating dead off of the San Diego Coast in La Jolla. The blue whale carcass was netted and taken to Fiesta Island which is well known for the annual Over the Line Tournament. Fiesta Island is next to Sea World San Diego and is a local favorite place for jet skiing, swimming and fires on the beach. The smell from the carcass was said to be a potential nuisance to the La Jolla residences noses.

The whale was analyzed by whale experts and dismantled and taken to the Miramar Landfill. The cause of death is still unknown. I have seen many whales off the San Diego Coast but never a blue whale. Hopefully the one I see will be alive.

The blue whale is the largest mammal and most likely the largest animal to ever live on the planet. Blue whales have a length of 75 to 100 feet with the longest one on record being 108 feet.

Mike:  Sad story.  Will be interesting to hear what killed it.  Whales really are very impressive in person.  Got chills when I saw one on my Alaskan cruise.  Can't remember what kind it was though.
