MORRIS ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - Two boaters came across the body of a whale near Morris Island.
According to DNR officials, the whale appeared to be that of a pygmy sperm whale.
The boaters say when they first spotted it Friday afternoon, they thought it was a log that was floating.
Authorities say they are not sure what killed the animal. Several dolphins and dead fish have washed up on Lowcountry beaches recently.
