Dead fin whale to be moved to landfill

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The state parks department has decided what to do with the fin whale carcass that washed ashore near the border over the weekend.

The plan is to allow NOAA scientists some time to study it, then eventually cut the remains into pieces and move them to a landfill.

The dead whale originally washed up on Point Loma last week, and was towed out to sea for shark tracking research when the tow line snapped.

Scientists will begin examining the carcass on Thursday.
