Whale Found Beached In Grassy England Field (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Mystery surrounds a 33-foot whale that was found beached in a grassy field 800 yards from the shoreline in Yorkshire, United Kingdom.

Some scientists suspect the mammal, believed to be a rare female sei whale, became stranded and died after an abnormally high tide carried it to a salt marsh. But others have different theories.
