Dead Cook Inlet beluga was pregnant

Posted: Sunday, October 11, 2009

ANCHORAGE - A scientist says a dead beluga whale found in the waters off downtown Anchorage was pregnant.

Pathologists are still studying tissue samples they collected from the dead whale Friday. It beached along the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail.

They won't know how she died until they get back to the lab and run some tests. But they are sure she was pregnant.

The beluga population is declining and is estimated at about 321.
