Beached whale dies in Vancouver (10 images)

A 30-foot young humpback whale beached itself on a suburban Vancouver beach and died there.
The midday tide rolls in as police move crowds of people back as they view an eight to ten meter long juvenile humpback whale which died shortly after washing up on the beach in White Rock near Vancouver, British Columbia, early morning June 12, 2012, despite the efforts of local people who tried to save it. The whale was scarred, covered in lice and open sores and appeared malnourished, likely too weak to fight the early morning incoming tides. UPI / Heinz Ruckemann
