Authorities were responding on Saturday to a whale that beached near the Peter Iredale shipwreck at Fort Stevens State Park.

A beached whale was spotted at Fort Stevens State Park on Saturday, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard received reports of the beached whale and have shared the information to NOAA as the leading response agency, the Coast Guard said.

The agency is asking people to remain at least 200 yards away from the whale, which was seen near the Peter Iredale shipwreck, for the safety of the people and the whale.
