Gray Whales washing up dead on Northwest Beaches

An unusually large number of grey whales are washing up dead on their northbound migration past the Oregon and Washington coasts this year. The peak stranding time for grey whales in the Pacific Northwest is normally April, May and June. But the federal agency NOAA Fisheries has already logged nine dead whales washed ashore in Washington and one in Oregon.
