Snow Plow was an 18-year-old Humpback Whale (45 feet long, 40 tons) that was noticed floating dead about 20 miles out into the Gulf of Maine off the coast of New Hampshire. Eventually the tides brought the body onto the shore at Rye Harbor State Park/Foss Beach. The cause of the whale's death was not know at the time I posted these photos but a necropsy will be performed on Wednesday to ascertain it. The skeleton will go to a museum and the other remains disposed of by the 4th.
