Dead baby orca washes up off Vancouver Island
SEATTLE (AP) — An official with the Canadian government says a baby orca that washed up dead off Vancouver Island last week had an infection but an exam didn't reveal an obvious cause of death. Marine mammal coordinator Paul Cottrell with Fisheries and Oceans Canada says a surfer discovered the 340-pound female calf on Dec. 23 near Barkley Sound. A necropsy was performed two days later.
