A dead gray whale washed ashore in the northern reaches of Torrey Pines State Beach Thursday.

The discovery of the juvenile whale carcass near the Del Mar city limits was reported in the late morning, said Joy Inton, a park aide for Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve.

It remained unclear this evening how authorities planned to dispose of the carcass.
