Whale found dead on southwest beach
Enriquillo, Dominican Republic.- A whale around 15 meters long was found dead Sunday at a beach between the towns Las Merceditas and Los Blancos, near Enriquillo, on the coast of Barahona (southwest).
People who found the whale carcass immediately contacted the authorities of the town, drawing dozens of onlookers to the beach.
The type of whale and how it died are unknown thus far, for which the Environment Ministry was called in to determine the cause.
However most locals agree that the whale could’ve asphyxiated under its own weight after being beached.
