WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. - The Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center says a humpback whale that was found stranded on the Eastern Shore of Virginia will be euthanized.
The whale was found on a secluded section of Wallops Island on Wednesday morning.
The aquarium's marketing director, Linda Candler, says stranded whales typically don't survive. Candler says initial reports from a stranding response team indicated that the whale is a large juvenile.
She says the whale is between 30 and 40 feet long. A necropsy will be performed on Thursday.
