Another dead whale has shown up at Port Mahon but strong winds kept officials from recovering the animal to find out why it died.
Suzanne Thurman, executive director of the Marine Education, Research and Rehabilitation Institute, told the Wilmington News Journal that the mammal appeared to be a juvenile humpback.
This is the fourth such incident in Delaware.
Meanwhile, the Virginia coast also saw four such fatalities late last year.
All of this has led the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to declare an unusual mortality event.
