4 gray whales found dead in San Francisco Bay Area in 9 days

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Four dead gray whales have washed onto San Francisco Bay Area beaches in the last nine days.

    Experts say the carcass of a 41-foot adult female gray whale landed at San Francisco’s Crissy Field on March 31.

    A second adult female was found last Saturday in Moss Beach in San Mateo County. A third was found Wednesday floating near the Berkeley Marina and the following day one washed up in Marin County’s Muir Beach.

    Friday's whale was struck by a ship. Experts haven't determined how the other three died.
