PALM BEACH, Fla. — A sperm whale calf that was beached a mile from President Donald Trump’s Florida residence has died, wildlife officials said Monday.
Choppers flying near Mar-a-Lago found the deceased whale near the shoreline in Palm Beach, less than a mile from the president’s resort residence, WPTV reported.
The FWC said sperm whales are a federally endangered species, in Florida.
Officials from the FWC were at the scene, taking photos and investigating the mammal’s death. Officials said crews will move the sperm whale and perform a necropsy to determine its cause of death.
