Ugh this is devastating and warning...slightly disturbing for any animal lover really.
A GIANT male fin whale has washed ashore the Barnegat Light Beach just by LBI after what experts believe to be as a result of the whale being struck by a ship.
A crowd quickly drew up on the beach as spectators gathered around to scope out the scene.
According to NJ.com, The Marine Mammal Stranding Center was on the scene and the decision was made by officials to bury the whale on the beach.
The video below was captured by beach goers as the professionals evaluated the carcass of the whale.
