Pilot whale carcass tossed from Rockport to Gloucester shore

A pilot whale carcass that washed up Tuesday near Long Beach in Rockport has now been tossed a hundred yards further down the shore and is now Gloucester’s responsibility to dispose of, said Tony LaCasse, spokesman for the New England Aquarium.

City officials in Gloucester must decide if they want to remove the rotting whale and dispose of it or hope that it washes out to sea, LaCasse said.
