The Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center says a humpback whale that was found stranded on the Eastern Shore of Virginia was euthanized.

The whale was found on a secluded section of Wallops Island on Wednesday morning.

The aquarium's marketing director, Linda Candler, says stranded whales typically don't survive. Candler says initial reports from a stranding response team indicated that the whale is a large juvenile.

She says the whale is between 30 and 40 feet long. A necropsy was performed Thursday.
