POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Wildlife officials were dispatched to Pompano Beach where a dead sperm whale is inching closer to shore.
A Broward Sheriff's Office statement says beachgoers spotted the whale Sunday morning. It's believed to be about 40 feet from shore. Tides keep washing the whale close to shore as rip currents pull it back out.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissioner has been notified.
