The waves reportedly continued to pull the whale back out to sea as crowds gathered to watch the unusual scene. No word on what happened, but biologists are reportedly headed out to sea today to see if they can recover the animal and find out what killed it.

Here's some footage of the whale (warning: it's sad):
