A 44-foot whale's carcass resurfaced after its burial along the Texas beach. Heidi Whitehead, from the Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network, had been called at the beach on Friday after the reports of the whale's remains reappeared. Whitehead performed a necropsy procedure on the whale, said to be male, and was reburied after it came ashore. The cause of its death is not known as to why the whale died after struggling for so long near the shore. According to the group, it was Sei whale, an endangered specie not found in the waters near the Gulf of Mexico, as reported by Global Viral News.

A local citizen spotted the 44-foot mammal, urging the doctors to reach the scene immediately. Unfortunately, the whale had to be killed without knowing any ways to help him. After its death, it was even tougher to remove the whale from its position to bury it. While attempting to move the whale, several straps were broken that threatened the lives of the doctors involved in the process. Despite conducting a comprehensive autopsy, the conclusive reason for its predicament could not be found. Many factors were considered such as psychological illness and diseases, amongst other reasons. There were many lacerations that could be seen on the whale's body. Its real cause remains unknown, whether it was caused due to its body rolling on the beach or due to some other reason. The guards were stationed at the spot throughout Tuesday and Wednesday night to keep the curious people from coming closing to the massive dead whale as the doctors performed the necropsy undistrurbed, as reported by Green Field Reporter.
