Sad To See A Dead Whale Floating Off Of The Dorset Coast

Shipping has been warned to be on the look-out for a dead whale seen floating off the coast at Portland. As yet the poor old beast has not been washed ashore but if it should it will collected and disposed of by the County Council.

It is believed to be a baleen whale  but the members of the Wildlife Trust would like to confirm this and to also determine the cause of death.

If it should get washed up the public are advised to stay clear of it and to contact the authorities to have it dealt with appropriately.
