Whale in Boston Harbor

BOSTON — The badly decomposed corpse of a 30-foot-long finback whale washed into Boston Harbor on Monday, possibly dragged in unintentionally by a ship, officials said.

The whale, which weighs perhaps 25 tons, had been dead for quite a while, said Susan Gedutis, a spokeswoman for the New England Aquarium. Experts could not determine the cause of its death, she said.
