Dead whale keeps returning to Southern California coast

 Dead whale keeps returning to Southern California coastA dead whale that keeps returning to the Southern California coast has been towed out to sea — again.

The 45-foot-long humpback called Wally was hauled away Wednesday after drifting near Dana Point in Orange County. A Harbor Patrol boat towed it 10 miles out to sea in a 3½-hour operation.

Wally — actually, a female — was first towed after washing up on Dockweiler State Beach in Los Angeles County before the Fourth of July weekend.

The decaying carcass was towed again a week later when it drifted toward San Pedro.

Wally was spotted near Newport Beach on Sunday and was towed out a third time but drifted back on Monday and had to be removed again.

Currents have been pushing the carcass south.
