A seven-foot beached whale was euthanized on Maui last night. The whale washed ashore bleeding from several areas of its body at about 3 p.m. at Kamaole Beach Park II in Kihei. A veterinarian examined the whale and NOAA Fisheries, Hawaiian Island Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary and volunteers were trying to keep the whale as comfortable as possible. The carcass was being taken to Hawaii Pacific University for analysis.
