BURIEN, Wash. - A dead whale drifted onto shore at a public park in Burien on Saturday morning, but there was no immediate information on how it died or what type of whale it is.

The Coast Guard started getting reports about the whale early Saturday as it floated about 100 yards off Three Tree Point.

The whale later drifted toward shore, washing up on the beach at Seahurst Park at about 10:30 a.m., witnesses said.
