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.
