A dead fin whale found washed up on a beach in Burien Saturday will be towed back into the water Wednesday.

The city of Burien, which owns the property where the whale was found, has worked out an agreement with NOAA and Global Diving and Salvage to tow the whale to a secure location where it can decompose naturally.

NOAA will collect additional samples from the whale. They have also identified an organization which will collect the whale’s skull.
