A whale with a possible injury to the right tail fin has been spotted along the North Carolina coast Tuesday morning.
The Coast Guard says someone spotted the whale between Emerald Isle and Salter Path, heading west. Officials did not know what type of whale was reported.
This whale spotting comes after a season of many already. There have been 20 strandings in NC so far this year...four whales, two seals, two porpoises and the rest dolphins. Two whales washed ashore in March, one in Virginia Beach and the other near the Outer Banks.
