Dwarf sperm whale washes ashore on Maui

By Associated Press

KIHEI, Hawaii (AP) A 7-foot-long beached whale was euthanized on Maui Christmas Day.

The Maui News reports the dwarf whale washed ashore before hundreds of beachgoers at Kamaole Beach Park II in Kihei.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration marine mammal health and response program manager David Schofield says the whale was euthanized Wednesday night by a veterinarian from Oahu.

Schofield says the carcass is being taken to Hawaii Pacific University for analysis.

Canadian visitor Karen Baylis saw three men trying to lift the beached whale back into the ocean at around 1:30 p.m. Baylis was sitting on the balcony of a nearby condominium with her nephew and rushed down to help the men.

She remembers grabbing the whale and being covered in blood.
