NOAA checking out Kauai dead humpback whale calf

By Associated Press

KEKAHA, Hawaii (AP) — Officials are heading to Kauai to check on a dead humpback calf that washed ashore on the western side of the island.

The 15-foot-long whale was visibly wounded, but the animal's cause of death has not yet been determined.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is sending a team to examine the whale Tuesday.

A tour boat captain reported a dead whale in the vicinity of Kokole Point in Kekaha at about 8:45 a.m. Monday.

Alan Yamagata is a water safety officer in Kekaha.

He says the whale was lying on its side and there were no sharks nearby. The water was clear to about 40 feet.

Yamagata noticed the whale was wounded on its underside, toward its tail.
