GRAND ISLE, LA (WVUE) -

It was a strange site on the beach in Grand Isle Saturday morning.

The State Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is investigating what may have caused a juvenile sperm whale to wash up on the shore. 

Crowds gathered as the whale was pulled on the shore by town workers. 

The whale was just under 30 feet and a town official said it appeared to have head injuries.
