Necropsy indicates boat strike killed whale

Dec 7, 2010 1:00:49 AM - komonews.com
Scientists who examined a young whale that washed up dead on a south Puget Sound beach say the most gruesome injury visible when it was alive likely caused its death. John Calambokidis of Cascadia Research says that back injury was not only deep but had sheared off the top part of at least two vertebrae. And he says a necropsy conducted Monday indicates the whale sustained the injury "many weeks or months previously."
