A seventh dead humpback whale has washed up on the Jersey Shore, this time in Brigantine.

State and marine mammal experts had responded on Friday, Jan 13 to Brigantine Beach a half-mile beyond a former U.S. Coast Guard station. 

There was much speculation on social media whether offshore testing for wind turbines has played a role in their deaths. 

The latest whale was described as a 20-foot juvenile.

The dead whale washed up just miles from where another whale was found in Atlantic City on Saturday, Jan. 7. It was the seventh dead whale washed up in 39 days.
