DEAD MINKE WHALE AT FOLLY COVE

Northern Minke Whale

The dead Minke Whale that washed ashore Friday at Folly Cove is still there, although his carcass has shifted further in shore. His body is torn and weather beaten and appears to have been tossed around quite a bit before washing ashore.

Wear boots with good treads if you plan to cross the slippery rocks to go see.

Several years ago, Al Bezanson shared the photo below of a Minke Whale stranded at Rocky Neck (the whale escaped).
