PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) - A dead whale, believed by marine biologists to be a humpback, has washed ashore in Northern California.

KSBW-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2uNlua8 ) the whale appeared Saturday at Pebble Beach near Bird Rock Point.

Marine biologist Katlyn Taylor called in the sighting.

A necropsy will help marine biologists determine the cause of death.

In Southern California, crews managed to mostly free a juvenile humpback whale that was entangled in fishing line. Officials say the whale is swimming freely but still has some line caught in its mouth.
