A deceased sperm whale was found in the waters off Barangay Dinahican, Infanta, Quezon, on Sunday, April 14, according to the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG).

In a report, the PCG said it assisted in the disposal of the whale, which was first notified by a concerned citizen.

"The Coast Guard Sub-Station (CGSS) in Infanta coordinated with the Municipal Agricultural Office (MAO), Municipal Environmental and Natural Resources Office (MENRO), and DENR CENRO-Real to address the situation," it said.

The PCG confirmed that the whale was in an advanced state of decomposition based on the assessment.
