Washed Up Whale

The Telegram (St. John’s) - - LOCAL - BY ELLA

On Tues­day, May 23rd, 2017 a whale washed up on the Outer Cove Beach. It was a male and it had a chunk out of its side. It was re­ally big and ev­ery time the tide came in the whale would jig­gle.

At first it scared us then it didn’t. We were climb­ing the rocks and we could see the whale from above.

It was more than 60 feet long.

The whale had lots of germs and chem­i­cals.

The body will get do­nated to Science. My friends and I got re­ally wet but it was re­ally awe­some!

We are sad be­cause the whale died and we don’t know how it hap­pened. But we don’t know and we may never know.
