(Seaside, Oregon) - A dead baby Gray whale washed up onto a north Oregon coast beach Friday, surprising visitors and leading northwest media to immediately speculate it had something to do with the spate of dead Grays on the Washington coast.

Instead, a necropsy has since proven what experts initially could tell by sight: it had been caught in rope from crab pots and drowned.
