This is quite sad and unfortunate.

An animal corpse believed to be a dead whale calf was washed up the Pantai Puteri beach in Malacca yesterday (Sunday, 17th July).

Civil Defence Department (JPAM) personnel Mohd Ridzuan Abdullah told NST that the carcass was discovered by his colleague around 1am, who initially assumed that the 2 metres long whale was simply a big wooden object washed ashore.

Upon further inspection, he realised that the object was a dead whale calf,” the 61-year-old JPAM personnel told the publication. Mohd Ridzuan noted that there were visible injuries on the whale’s body, believed to have been caused a ship’s propeller.

SWM Environment Sdn Bhd have since been contacted to disposal the whale carcass.

A similar incident occurred earlier this February, where a 4-tonne whale was found dead at the river mouth of Sungai Sarang Buaya, Johor, after it was rescued just the day before.
