Whale washes ashore at Ocean City

By Mike McPhate

Ocean City Beach Patrol officials say a 25-foot-long whale carcass has washed ashore at the resort town.

Butch Arbin, beach patrol captain, says the tide carried the carcass ashore around Sixth Street Thursday about 5:15 p.m.

Arbin says crews have tied a lasso to the creature's tail and the Coast Guard will try to pull it out to sea.

Employees at a boardwalk store tell WBAL-TV that there is a foul stench in the area.
