30-foot whale found on New York beach

Source: CNN

A passer-by discovered a 30-foot-long whale, still breathing, on a New York beach Wednesday morning, authorities said.

The whale is alive but looks injured, New York Police Department Officer James Duffy said. Judging from pictures, it appears to be a humpback, he said.

It was found near Beach 216th Street and Palmer Place, on the north side of the Breezy Point neighborhood. Around 10:40 Wednesday morning, someone on a morning stroll noticed the whale, half in the water and half in the sand, and called 911.

3. Have you no compassion?

The poor whale is probably close to dying and you insult it by claiming it's Rush Limbaugh? For shame!
