Video: Southern Right Whale With Numerous Shark Bites Washes Ashore in Australia

Beachgoers on a remote beach near Tumby Bay in South Australia had a surprise on July 30, 2013 when they came across a southern right whale that had washed ashore.

The cause of death was not known but there was clear evidence that the whale had become a shark feast at some point.  It is unknown if the numerous shark bites were the cause of death or if they occurred post mortem, which is most likely the case.

The video was posted by Mark Thomas and is 0:58 in length.
