JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Federal investigators are preparing to perform a necropsy to find out why a 30- to 35-foot whale was found dead in New York harbor.

A spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers said Tuesday that they were notified about the whale on Monday. It has been moved next to a barge so that it does not disrupt ships’ navigation.

Christopher Gardner says the whale will be moved to Caven Point Marine Terminal in Jersey City on Wednesday, so a team from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration can perform a necropsy.
