Progreso, Yucatán — Apparently for the first time in Yucatán’s recorded history, the remains of a huge whale more than 13 meters long was found stranded along the coast.

At 10 this morning, the majestic creature’s carcass was towed away to be studied by UADY staff before being buried.

While this is the first such occurrence in memory, in recent weeks there have been several cases of stranded dolphins, a turtle, and a pygmy sperm whale.

Municipal authorities of Fisheries and Ecology are investigating.

More details as we find them.
