Ray Deiter figures that if he can't save the whales, he'll do the next best thing--find out why they died. In between treating ailing horses, dogs and assorted other creatures, the burly 41-year-old veterinarian has become a self-taught coroner for the whales, seals and sea lions that periodically wash ashore along the coast north and south of San Francisco. It's an unofficial position.

A harpoon killed the 40-foot gray whale whose carcass was found wedged in the pilings of a San Francisco pier, a veterinarian said. Dr. Raymond Deiter said the whale probably was wounded in the ocean about two weeks ago and took refuge in San Francisco Bay. "It's not common, but there are still nations taking this animal and there are also pirates," said Deiter, who has been studying gray whales for nine years.
