Dead blue whale might have been hit by boat

A pregnant blue whale that washed up on a California beach last weekend likely died after colliding with a large ship, an official with the California Academy of Sciences said Thursday.

"There's no forensic evidence on the whale that could lead us to the identity of the boat," he said. "However, given the size of the whale, it's most probably a large, industrial ship. Unfortunately, there's no evidence on the whale that could identify what specific ship."
