Marine mammal experts are concerned about the death of a gray whale that washed ashore in San Francisco

SAUSALITO, Calif. -- Marine mammal experts are concerned about the death of a gray whale that washed ashore in San Francisco.

The whale found Monday on Ocean Beach was the ninth discovered in the San Francisco Bay Area since March.

The Marine Mammal Center plans a necropsy to determine what killed the animal.

The center says four previous whales died from malnutrition and three were struck by ships. The cause of death for another hasn't been determined.
